Migration with Families

Children migrating with families refers to children who directly experience mobility, together with their parents.  Most research on migrant families is focused on the family unit or the household. It assumes the adults are the key actors and the children often become invisible due to their assigned status of dependents. The research highlighted within this theme brings to fore the children's perspectives. It highlights children's participation within the migration process of the family. The theme aims to show the active role children can play within the migration process, the community they become part of and the transnational networks they participate in.
