Abstract

Author(s): Yaser SNOUBAR

International students are among the most important groups that contribute to cultural diversity within the host country, as well as the fact that international students are the motto of peace and security among nations. Looking at international students within the campus of any university in the world gives us a picture that people of all shapes, colors, languages and cultures can live in peace and security on the planet. However, we find that these students suffer from some problems related to language, adaptation, culture, economic matters, housing and leisure and thus the emergence of problems of academic achievement. All these problems can be accepted by international students and solved as expected problems because of living in a new environment. However, the discrimination and oppression faced by international students cannot received it as expected things as a result of diversity. To the extent that discrimination issues affect adaptation and academic achievement, it is also affect the mental and physical health of international students. This article attempts to focus on the problem of discrimination experienced by international students and its dimensions. At the same time, it focuses on the role of social work in working with international students who are discriminated and suggests the most important points and social policies that countries should take to reduce this problem and its consequences.
