With the constant exchange of international information now a permanent condition in the world, social work scholars and students must be sensitive to the need for knowledge sharing between countries as well as to issues involved in obtaining and utilizing international knowledge. This book presents many prospects and great potential for international social work research. It establishes three discrete varieties of research - supranational, intranational, and transnational - and explores a wealth of issues and examples within each. The book aids in the defining and distinguishing each kind of research, then provides actual applications of all three. Examples draw on research from the world over, ranging from microcredit programs in India to migrant aid in Nicaragua to adoptees in Romania.
