Event description

Description

The UTSA College of Public Policy, in partnership with the Department of Social Work and The Universidad Nacional Autónoma in México, are excited to present the 2nd Binational Conference México-United States at the newly constructed Conference Center at the UTSA Downtown Campus on November 15-16, 2017 located in the Durango Building, 501 W. César E. Chavez Blvd.

About 50 scholars from Mexico will join us to discuss the transnational responsibility of social work in migratory processes and human rights in México and the United States. The conference aims to establish intervention protocols that contribute to the professional training of social workers and propose lines of research that explain the scenarios, processes, and transnational spaces that produce migration and how the social worker would participate.

Experts on migration processes and human rights will cover the following topics:

  • Immigration policy of the U.S.
  • Social work intervention with the migrant population, justice and due process with unaccompanied minors and immigrant families, and deportation and forced return to new environments.
  • Developing strategies for social workers, and the non-government organizations and social actors who develop public policy strategies for the return of migrants in the most vulnerable state.

And much more!
