Families, childhood and migration

Families, childhood and migration

This theme explores the intersection of family and migration in the context of contemporary African mobility. Animated by theories of integration, transnationalism, resilience, and using multi-sited and mixed methods, the theme explores the meanings, functions, performance and responses of families to migration, both forced and voluntary.  Through various projects the theme interrogates issues pertaining to families in the diaspora, migrant children, marriage and relationships, sexual and reproductive health, belonging, discrimination, endurance and violence.
