Hanna Caldwell

Hanna joined the CRCF in April 2018 while completing her MSW at McGill. She currently works with the Canada Research Chair on Social Services for Vulnerable Children and the Social Services Research Lab at the Université de Montréal under the supervision of Professor Tonino Esposito.

Previously, she worked on several other research projects based at the CRCF related to harm reduction family intervention in Inuit communities in Labrador, critical analysis of the concept of “neglect” in child protection, comparative analysis of federal child protection legislation in the U.S. and Canada, and content generation for a web-based tool for frontline family social work in Quebec and New Brunswick during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hanna has recently provided program management support to the Canadian Consortium on Child and Youth Trauma. She has also worked with the International Community Action Network based at the McGill School of Social Work, including a summer spent as interim program manager of a community-based organization in the Ashrefiyyeh neighbourhood of Amman, Jordan. In tandem with her research work, Hanna recently coordinated a program at a community organization supporting social connection for refugee women resettled in Montreal. A selection of Hanna’s publications is available here.

Before coming to McGill, Hanna obtained a bachelor’s degree from the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University where she studied culture, politics, and the Arab world. She previously worked in international development, refugee resettlement, and migrant mental health in the Middle East and North America.
