Child Migration Research Network

The Child Migration Research network (CMRN) has been established to help assess the impact of migration on children and youth.  The aim of the CMRN is to bring together researchers who look at how migration affects children and to highlight research work, especially that in grey literature or other hard to reach sources, that focuses on this area. 

Estimating the numbers of children affected by migration worldwide is beset by problems, but the high rates of adult migration suggest that enormous numbers of children and youth are affected, either as migrants themselves (with families or alone) or by members of their families migrating.  For more on numbers see some of our data sources.  If you would like to join the researchers network, contribute a resource, comment on the website or sign up for email updates please use the links in the left hand column.
