This chapter defines the meaning of international social service and intercountry casework, reviews the kinds of intercountry cases most commonly encountered, and identifies how to prepare the next generation of social workers to address transnational casework. The experiences of the International Social Service (ISS)—a major provider of intercountry services—is used to illustrate the discussion. The chapter provides an overview of the organization and two of its Branches, the International Social Service of the United Kingdom (ISS UK) and International Social Service, USA (ISS-USA).

Keywords:   international social service, social work practice, social workers, transnational casework, ISS UK, ISS-USA
