Honorary Prize 2021

It is my pleasure to announce that the NASSW for 2021 goes to Lára Björnsdóttir. Very well deserved for your outstanding contribution to social work. The prize was handed out at the online Nordic FORSA/NASSW conference 2021 “No one will be left behind”.

A running theme throughout Lára´s career is her great passion and commitment to social justice and human rights. One could say that the slogan „ the personal is the political“ certainly has applied to Lára´s approach to social work throughout her career.
