Children Left Behind

The theme of children left behind covers children who do not move themselves, but are left behind by one or both parents who have migrated. They may live with one parent or stay with other relatives, such as grandparents, aunts or uncles if both parents migrated. Topics covered under this theme include ideas around transnational parenthood, the impact of remittances on the child and child's well being and issues concerning child health and psycho social effects.
