Title Encounters With Irregular Migrants in Social Work : “Collateral Damage” and Reframing of Recognizability in Swedish Public Social Services
Author Cuadra, Carin Björngren
Date 2015
English abstract
The aim is to explore experiences and considerations of social workers regarding irregular migrants, understood as being prone to be “collateral damage.” It is revealed that some social workers approve assistance exceeding that which can find support in the national legislation. They are hereby addressing the normative conditions for recognition and installing new frames for apprehending irregular migrants. This process is referred to as a reframing of recognizability. By exceeding the limits of “belonging,” social workers question their profession's national link as well as the inability of a nationally anchored understanding of social work to deal with irregular migrants.
