Migrant social workers crossing borders:
In conversation with Allen Bartley
Social workers are a relatively mobile profession. Many of us find ourselves working in other countries but how well prepared are we for the experience? Allen Bartley talks about New Zealand research on migrant social workers.
Allen Bartley is a sociologist and senior lecturer in the School of Counselling, Human Services and Social Work at the University of Auckland. He migrated to New Zealand from the USA in 1992. His primary research interests include 1.5-generation migrants and transnationalism, ethnic politics in New Zealand and transgenerational ethnic identity. Current work includes a study of overseas-qualified social workers practicing in New Zealand, and the emergence of transnational professional spaces.
