Work With Immigrants and Refugees
Migration worldwide continues to increase as people move in, through, and out of countries and regions. As borders become more porous, eyes turn to nations with relatively large migration flows, looking for answers to questions about policy, impact on the labor force, integration, and implications for governmental programs. However, receiving countries may or may not have the most effective answers. With a multitude of areas under discussion, at least one of three is voiced by most nations: the presence of an unauthorized immigrant population, the loss of a workforce through emigration, and the social and economic integration of migrants. The implications are complex, and social work is ideally suited to address issues of entry, adaptation, and exit. This chapter discusses general issues facing newcomers and host nations, suggests implications for social work practice, and provides resources for further information.
