International Congress 2019
The more globalised the world becomes, the more important are local identities. The global becomes effective in the local sphere. This phenomenon, called ‘glocalisation’ since the 1990s, poses various challenges to humans and the social structures in which they participate.The professionals of social work, health sciences and practical theology, who care for people in their social areas, face global developments in a local environment: how can they overcome global problems in local contexts both in a professional and innovative way? What are the consequences for the universities and higher education institutions with their mission of education, research and transfer of knowledge and expertise?
