About this book

This edited collection captures the intersection between migration, mobility and childhood studies. Contributors explore under-researched child and youth short-term and micro movements within major migration fluxes that occur in response to migration and global change.

Reviews

“The interesting mix of theory and empirical evidence, such as the arguably under-researched transnational migration corridors (e.g. Africa-Europe), could be useful to scholars in migration, childhood and development studies as it can stimulate new thinking on how we imagine children, adolescents and youth within the transnational migration social space. … Ultimately this book is recommended because it is well written and in line with the stated aim of the editors.” (Michael Boampong, Children's Geographies, Vol. 16 (2), April, 2017)

“Bringing discussions on transnational, indigenous, e-diasporic and forced migrant youth together, the anthology is strongly recommended for students and scholars interested in learning how to thoroughly question predominant static notions of childhood and adolescence as a chronological, strictly age-bound universal social category. The book is also recommended to those interested in adopting a child or youth-centred epistemological and methodological research approach.” (Koen Leurs, Nordic Journal of Migration Research, Vol. 7 (1), 2017)
