International Social Work: Project ThRIvE

Empowering international social workers to engage in sustainable, mindful, conflict, and cultural sensitive practice

The DAAD-funded project ThRIvE (International Social Work from Crises to Sustainable Futures - Thinking from the Future, Recognizing & Interconnecting in the Past, Virtual & Embodied Empowerment in the Present), supports and promotes the international and scientific exchange about international social work in crisis contexts. It is based on a collaboration between the Technical University Würzburg-Schweinfurt (THWS) in Germany, the Modern University for Business and Science (MUBS) in Lebanon and the German Jordanian University (GJU) in Jordan. Until 2025, as part of the project, various in presence courses and different blended-learning mobilities are organized and carried out in the trinational cooperation that deal with the topics of international social work, crisis-resilience & sustainability in all three countries. This also includes documenting previously invisible knowledge from social work practice in crisis regions and making that knowledge accessible future social workers and the general public.

In the ThRIvE project, the exchange and cooperation between the German, Lebanese, and Jordanian project partners, which was established with the previous projects HED, LOSWAC und AttiMa, will be continued.
