Bruce Yeates, the coordinator of the social work programme, presented a

paper entitled Social and Community Work Education and Practice at the

University of the South Pacific at the Fiji Association of Social Workers

Special General Meeting that was held on the 24 March 2007 @ JJ's On the

Park, Suva, Fiji.

Bruce stressed the need for social and community workers to be conscious

of the contexts in which social and community work practice and education

is located. He emphasized that events at the global, regional and national

levels directly impact individuals, families and communities at the local

level. This impact in turn affect the choice of social and community work

strategies and interventions at the local level, the organizational

structures that professionals work in and the social policies and

programmes that organizations plan and implement.
