About project

Unheard Voices: Developing the East Central Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse

The East Central European Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse will develop a regional common ground for exchange of ideas, cooperation and action. Its goal will be to create a transnational platform for studies on elder abuse, to promote awareness of the issue, and to offer training for professionals and recommendations for policy makers.

The project will bring together scholars and practitioners from across East Central Europe, EU and beyond. Six formal partners (members of EASSW) from Poland (Pedagogical University of Cracow, University of Warsaw, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, and the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan 2), Slovenia (University of Ljubljana), and Bulgaria (University of Ruse) will come together with informal participants (i.e., not in the EASSW) from Bulgaria, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Romania. Comparative work will also involve voices from Canada and the United States. Scholars, legislators, practitioners and professionals from participating member states will establish several platforms—online, print, training and awareness. The aim is to initiate a regional transnational network for cooperation in teaching and research, and to translate finding into effective and proactive social work practices, awareness campaigns and social policy initiatives.
