About this book

Children today are growing up in a world of global media. Many have also become global citizens, through their experience of migration and transnational networks. This book reviews research and debate in the media, globalization, migration and childhood, with empirical research in which children's voices are featured prominently and directly.

Reviews

'This book provides a critical review of research and debate in the overlapping fields of media, globalization, migration, and childhood.' - Journal of Consumer Policy

'What makes this book stand out from the crowd of other studies on media use is that it explores and analyses the experiences of immigrant children and presents these in a coherent form for the first time. The book's great strength is that it brings new evidence into familiar, and all too often abstract, discussions about culture and identity.' - European Journal of Communication
