Hosted by: the SIG in Social work research on integration policies with migrants and refugees (together with the SIG in social work, TV and media)
What images, stereotypes, prejudices appear in the minds of social workers when dealing with migrants and/or asylum seekers? Which images appear in the minds of migrants who are social services users when dealing with social workers?
The purpose of this Pre Conference session is to identify discourses, images and stereotypes which are present in the mind of social workers, social services users and citizens and how they can affect their daily work . We will try to connect it with the integration processes and challenge an integration framework as it is actually defined by proving that it is mainly based on prejudices
For the development of this seminar we were inspired by the reflections of Hofstede, Cohen Emerique, Bauman, Malouf and Kundani
The session will be practical and dynamic with many helpful examples and ideas
Date and time: 18 April 2018, 12.45-15.30; George Square Campus, room to be confirmed
