Welcome to the website for Global Social Work and Practice with Immigrants and Refugees!
Thinking Globally and Acting Locally at Silberman
There are many of us at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College — faculty, students and staff — interested in global social work and practice with immigrants and refugees and the many roles for social workers in this growing and important field. This website is an effort to make accessing relevant information easier for you and we hope you will find it useful.
The U.S. Senate is now debating a Comprehensive Immigration bill that could significantly reshape immigration policy for many years to come. As politicians and lobbyists push for their specific interests, to help frame this debate in the context of the families and communities that are most effected by immigration laws–watch the powerful short documentary Sin País (Without Country) HERE. For more information, check out the ‘Resources’ page of this website!
We have access to the documentary as well, so if you are interested in seeing it, please contact email@example.com!!
The site is divided into several sections:
- A description of the Global Social Work and Practice with Immigrants and Refugees Field of Practice at Silberman School of Social Work.
- A section run by the active student group, the Global Social Work Alliance.
- A section containing links to useful resources including: organizations, documents, toolkits, websites and library research guides in the field of Global Social Work and Practice with Immigrants and Refugees. Our resource section also includes links to global Human Rights instruments and related readings.
- A section with links to relevant programs, lectures and activities in our area.
We want this site to be a rich collaboration, so if you know of other relevant events, articles, agencies, or organizations working with immigrant and refugee populations that you would like to see included in this website, please let us know.
