South - North

This refers to international migration from countries of the south to countries of the north.  This is one of the areas where there is extensive work done, for example on second generation Indian migrants in the U.K.  However, most of the research highlighted by the CMRN will focus on those children likely to be affected by migration policies of the Northern countries, first generation migrant children or refugees and asylum seekers.  The list below highlights the most recent documents added to the theme of South - North migration.
