Neil Bilotta is a clinical assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work. Bilotta’s work explores social inclusion and culturally responsive ethics of social work. He is interested in the ways racism, colonialism, and Eurocentric power inform research methodologies and social work interventions with communities who face substantiated subjugation, most specifically forcibly displaced young people (refugees, asylum-seekers, etc.). He has worked with forcibly displaced young people in sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, the United States, and Canada.
Bilotta’s work also explores how race and racism underpin mainstream theoretical and methodological prisms related to social work. He received his Ph.D. at McGill University and his MSW at Smith College School for Social Work.
