Administrative history

The Association for Social Work Education in Africa (ASWEA) was organised in 1971 as a non-profit organisation dedicated to social work education in Africa. Between 1971 and 1989, ASWEA seminars were held with documents written up about each seminar.

Between 2000-2004 a group lead by Dr. Kreitzer from the University of Calgary, Faculty of Social Work, came across a set of documents that few people knew about. As it would transpire, these were the reports of the seminars of ASWEA. From 2004 onwards, Dr. Kreitzer then set out to find all seminar documents, which could not be located across the African continent, but were found in academic institutions in the United States, and compiled them in their entirety. With the help of funding provided by the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW), these documents were printed and bound in 6 hardcopy volumes. The aim of this project was, through the dissemination of these documents, to give African institutions and individuals the opportunity to analyse these documents and use them in the classroom. Also, these documents will contribute to enhance the knowledge and information about African social work, thereby adding to the global history of the profession of social work.

ASWEA is no longer in existence and the Association of Schools of Social Work in Africa (ASSWA) has taken over all publications by this organisation, including the copyright to the documents in this collection.
