The University of Shkodra "Luigj Gurakuqi", in cooperation with the University of Tirana and the University of Elbasan "Aleksandër Xhuvani", organized a roundtable discussion with participants from the academic staff of universities and social workers, representatives of partner organizations in this project.
The topic of discussion at this roundtable was the strengthening of relations between the university and the institutions and organizations operating in the field of social work. The improvement of the professional practice of social work students at both Bachelor's and Master's level was discussed, as well as the legal changes, achievements, difficulties and challenges faced by social workers of social structures. It was concluded that students' professional practices need more attention and this requires increased cooperation and access of universities with the social services sector. These discussions resulted in quite positive developments, as the opinions of professionals in the social field were unified and as the need for more lobbying in the future, regarding this issue, was supported.
