About this book

This collection brings together an interdisciplinary pool of scholars to explore the relationship between children and borders with richly-documented ethnographic studies from around the world. The book provides a penetrating account of how borders affect children's lives and how children play a constitutive role in the social life of borders.

Reviews

“This book provides plenty of evidence, including many photos, that new walls are constructed on many borders, to keep out those that would otherwise freely enter or to simply reinforce that ‘the other’ is not wanted. … The 15 chapters of this collection provide rich local insights. … The book as a whole makes intriguing reading … . The excellent index … helps busy users to locate keywords and specific scenarios quickly and effectively.” (Werner Menski, Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Law, Vol. 30 (3), 2016)

“The work outlined within this particular volume provides fertile ground for further interdisciplinary exploration of how children engage with borders. … This volume enables the two fields of study to take a closer step to one another, enriching both in the process. … The collection brings together accounts that serve as an important starting point, calling researchers within these respective fields to attention.” (Allegra, allegralaboratory.net, November, 2015)
