The Challenges of Re-establishing Social Work Education at Addis Ababa University: A Personal Reflection

  • Wassie Kebede Addis Ababa University, School of Social Work


This narrative describes the challenges of re-establishing social work education graduate degree programs at Addis Ababa University through the lens of my personal experience. Both the challenges and successes experienced by the author are directly related to the development of social work as an educational discipline and as a profession as it was re-established and re-invigorated in the first years of the 21st century in Africa.
