    invite you to

    The First International Conference



    Jarosław, May 14th 2014

    to be held at The Bronisław Markiewicz State Higher School of Technology and Economics in Jarosław


    Conference subject areas:

    The crucial elements of the conference constitute discussions devoted to charity, philanthropy and social work. Attention will be paid to the philosophical basis of the concept of help, the pro-social model of personality, and difficulties experienced when providing help to others.

    We invite representatives of diverse fields, including philosophers, sociologists, pedagogues, psychologists and many others, to share and exchange views.

    The subject areas of the conference reflect contemporary issues in the development of social work, and will enable us to discuss recent problems relating to charity and philanthropy in society.

    During the conference the following aspects will be discussed:

    • Civil society and people-to-people co-operation as the foundations of charitable institutions
    • The history of philanthropy in Poland and around the world
    • Motives of philanthropy – agape or “common” help to fellow human beings?

    Attention will be paid to specific types of help including humanitarian aid, altruism, utilitarianism, and work undertaken for evangelical reasons. We shall examine questions about people's willingness to help others, helping people as a realization of both human and God’s love, and offering help as therapy, fate, or as a commodity.

    • Pro-social personality
    • Voluntary work and philanthropy in the opinion of the Polish Association for Mentally Impaired People
    • Philosophical foundations of the concept of help
    • Historical and cultural determinants of social work
    • Social work in non-governmental organizations and public institutions
    • Self-governments and non-governmental organizations – partnership or competition?

    Papers presented at the conference will be published in the Journal Charity, Philanthropy and Social Work after peer review. The deadline for papers is April 15th 2014. Your notification of intention to participate, including the topic of your paper, an abstract, and a note of significant information about you, should reach us no later than March 30th. Guidelines:
