“Social Work with Migrants and Refugees: Challenges, Best Practices, and Future Directions”

Guest Editors:

Marciana Popescu, PhD, MSW, Associate Professor, GSSS, Fordham University, Popescu@fordham.edu

Kathryn Libal, PhD, Associate Professor, School of Social Work and Director, Human Rights Institute, University of Connecticut, Kathryn.libal@uconn.edu

 

This special issue of Advances in Social Work will focus on current challenges and best practices with migrants and refugees in an increasingly difficult global context. Over the past five years, forced migration and displacement reached record numbers, while complex geopolitical, economic, and environmental factors contributed to escalating current challenges. International human rights and migration laws provide a framework too narrow and too limited for these recent developments. Political pressure and a growing identity crisis add to the xenophobia and climate of fear in which security becomes the sole purpose of rapidly changing migration policies.
