This book explores theories and skills needed to navigate social work with refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants in the United Kingdom. Each chapter covers a key knowledge area that brings together voices from across disciplines, interspersed with the perspectives of asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants. The challenges faced when working in this community are discussed, and the latest developments in policy are reviewed. Following an introduction, specific chapters address: practicing social work without borders; Black feminist diaspora spaces of social work critical reflexivity; migration and austerity; disability and forced migration; learning from immigration controversies; working with separated children and young people seeking international protection; asylum-seeking children in and leaving foster care; lessons from community work; understanding destitution and finding creative solutions; supporting migrants and asylum seekers in and beyond immigration detention in the United Kingdom; age assessments of unaccompanied minors; interpreters in social work; and future directions for social work without borders.
