This module focuses on “human rights-based social work projects around the world”. An international practice of social work can take place in local communities of immigration societies (e.g., establishing ombuds offices, civic platforms, working with illegalized persons, human rights education in formal and informal education), on a national level (involvement in the legislative process, e.g., for unaccompanied minors) or inter- respectively transnationally (as a project of a globally active NGO, as a member of a social movement, in the application of procedures of the UN or the European Court of Human Rights etc.).
In accordance with B module contents, for example projects in the field of social welfare, health care, access to medical care, housing, education, and gainful employment will be discussed. Another part will focus on projects of child and youth work, working with persons with mental disabilities, dealing with the problematic effects of migration, seeking refuge, of direct as well as structural violence. In the international context, for example projects in the area of “disaster relief”, “war and post-conflict reconstruction”, “displacement”, and “poverty” (e.g., landless people’s movement) need to be discussed.
