This book shows the different ways in which migration matters in the context of global and local childhood and youth. Furthermore, it highlights that childhood, youth and migration as well as local and global perspectives need to be thought and analyzed together, to address the significant dimensions of social inequality in the context of growing up. Migration as a phenomenon is most often motivated by the search for a better life. Very often children and young people, migrating alone or together with their families, migrate to ameliorate their own or others’ living conditions and seize opportunities for realizing a good life. Today as well as in the past this search for a better life is very often triggered by socio-economic reasons, war or terrorism. Against the backdrop of the topic raised above the book deals with children and young people’s own perspective in countries of migration. It promotes the idea of connecting global and local issues of childhood and youth with a special focus on questions of education. It studies questions of global and local living and highlights living circumstances shaped by patterns of migration and mobility.

When people -- whether children, youth, and adults -- migrate, that migration is often perceived as a rupture, with people separated by great distances and for extended periods of time. But for migrants and those affected by migration, the everyday persists, and migration itself may be critical to the continuation of social life. Everyday Ruptures illuminates the wide-ranging continuities and disruptions in the experiences of children around the world, those who participate in and those who are affected by migration. The book is organized around four themes: - how children's agency is affected by institutions, families, and beliefs - how families and individuals create and maintain kin ties in conditions of rupture - how emotion and affect are linked to global divisions and flows - how the actions of states create ruptures and continuities

This ground-breaking book weaves together insights from the children and youth studies literature and critical development studies. Debunking the idea of childhood and youth as self-evident social categories, the author unravels how these generational constructs are (re)constituted and experienced in relational terms in development contexts spanning both the Global South and the Global North. Running through these chapters is a fundamental concern with age, gender and generation as key principles of social differentiation. This is developed in Part 1 at a theoretical level, and applied to everyday contexts, including school, work, migration and the street in Part 2. Part 3 zooms in on the generational dynamics of development by exploring how prominent development interventions (conditional cash transfers, schooling) problems (gender discrimination) and questions (the generational question of farming) shape the (gendered) experience of being young and growing up.

This book challenges the adult-centric tendencies of migration research and policy which often overlooks children and young people’s own experiences of migration. A wide range of international contributors provide careful analysis of the situations of children in contemporary transnational migratory contexts in the Global North and South. Drawing on studies with migrant children and young people in a variety of situations, Transnational Migration and Childhood makes a unique contribution to furthering our understandings of transnational childhoods. It explores the laws and policies that govern children and young people’s experiences of transnational migration whilst foregrounding their own accounts of migration and transnationalism. The book shifts our attention away from dominant discourses of migrant children as ‘victims’, towards the development of broader conceptualisations of transnational migration and childhood. It incorporates different migratory flows, a variety of sending and receiving contexts, and child-centred perspectives. Transnational Migration and Childhood will be of interest to researchers and policy makers working in the fields of migration, asylum, and childhood at local, national, and transnational scales. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies.

My dissertation tackles an understudied phenomenon: the mobile trajectories of children's lives under conditions of ongoing political violence and increasing economic uncertainty in rural Mexico. During the 1990s international migration has spread like wildfire through Mexican rural communities without previous experience in US migration. Neoliberal reforms have resulted in increased levels of migration form rural to urban areas and across borders, while the abandonment of cultivated land has intensified in states where subsistence agriculture predominates. In many Nahua communities in Puebla, central Mexico, traditional forms of everyday life have been recently disrupted by rapid processes of youth out-migration to New York and Philadelphia. Boys and girls between 12 and 20 years old are taking the lead in emerging patterns of migration by using youth gang membership and practices as social capital to construct support networks in their passages to the north. My dissertation is concerned with the forms in which Mexican rural youth are being uprooted from subsistence activities in their local communities and incorporated into transnational spaces and global consumer practices and identities. In doing so, it also uncovers how youth negotiate the incorporation of new material social practices while struggling to forge new forms of belonging to rural spaces and social life. Back in the rural village, children's everyday practices are being reorganized and relocated given their older siblings and parent's migration and reception of remittances. By placing children and youth at the center of the analysis my dissertation sheds new light on the effects of transnational capitalism on rural Mexico and on emerging transnational forms of life.
