Irish in Britain vulnerability 'race' complexity of Irish identities stereotypes RACISM
The article focuses on the perceptions of Irish social workers working in `children and families' settings in Britain. These respondents cannot be seen as representative of all Irish social workers in Britain, yet they do provide insights into five significant themes: the approach to `race' and ethnicity in social work education; Irish identities in Britain; racism and stereotyping; children and families who are Irish Travellers; and an agenda for the future. The discussion considers some of the issues raised in the context of what has been referred to as the `politics of recognition'.
