Racism and Antiracist Strategies

Racism and Antiracist Strategies

(p.237) 36 Racism and Antiracist Strategies
Handbook of International Social Work

Narda Razack

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on international perspectives on racism. It addresses the saliency of race in an era of globalization and transnationalism. It also emphasizes the importance of including an analysis of racism and oppression in every facet of international social work: pedagogy, research, practice, and policy. The chapter begins with the current understanding of race and oppression and examples of its pernicious and pervasive nature. It is especially crucial to examine the globalization of racism because racial matters are of concern in every corner of the globe. Racism also includes an examination of whiteness for international social work. The consequences of racism continue to be brutal to those on the receiving end. International social workers need to trace the multiple meanings of race in order to understand how race is perceived and practiced differently in Western and non-Western contexts.
