Join the Crafting Resilience Kick Off on 30 March 2023

The Crafting Resilience Kick Off on 30 March seeks to inspire conversations around new state-citizen relations in the social domain. At this conference, international researchers discuss core questions at the heart of the new NWA Crafting Resilience project: How do welfare and social work reproduce normative ideas? How can we work within such structures to achieve radical change?


The keynote and discussions bring together experts in the field, including: Sarah Bracke (Professor of Sociology of Gender and Sexuality UvA), Davina Cooper (Research Professor of Law and Political Theory, King’s College London), Vanessa Barker (Professor of Sociology at Stockholm University), Rudi Roose (Professor of Social Work, Ghent University), Nicolas Duvoux (Professor of Sociology, Paris 8 University), Mette-Louise Johansen (VIVE, The Danish Center for Social Science Research), Shivant Jhagroe (Assistant Professor of Public Administration, Leiden University), Judi Mesman (Professor of the interdisciplinary study of societal changes, Leiden University), and Mariël van Pelt (Lector Social Resilience Fontys/senior advisor, Movisie). 


The Crafting Resilience Kick Off will take place on 30 March 2023 at Museum Volkenkunde in Leiden. Participation is free, but RSVPing is required. You can check the full programme on the event page or directly RSVP

NWA research project Crafting Resilience

This conference is part of the new NWA research project Crafting Resilience: Politics and Practice, which will investigate the dilemmas and pitfalls of new collaborations between state actors and citizens in the Netherlands, and suggest ways for them to become more effective, democratic, and just. The core themes of the project include: intersectional inequalities, policy trends, new state-citizen relations in the social domain, and the role of social workers in crafting more just and democratic welfare worlds. The program is led by three PIs: Femke Kaulingfreks (lector Youth and Society, Inholland University), Anouk de Koning (CAOS, Leiden University), and Maartje van der Woude (VVI, Leiden University).
