New CHILD-UP research publication on "Exploring the Narratives and Agency of Children with Migrant Backgrounds within Schools" now available

Posted on 2 August 2023 by CHILD-UP team

The CHILD-UP partnership is glad to announce the release of its final research publication. The volume presents the CHILD-UP project through a scientific and in-depth overview of its results.

Using qualitative data and theoretical foundations obtained through interviews and focus groups, the book ultimately centres the perspectives and experiences of both children and professionals working with them. In doing so, it explores the complex position that migrant children occupy in host societies, their exercise of agency, challenges and inspirational local practices that support hybrid integration and innovative educational planning. Furthermore, it analyses the facilitation of conversations concerning children’s personal experiences and social relations, second language learning and language mediation, based on video- and audio-recordings of school activities.

The book is intended to be of relevance to researchers, academics, scholars, and faculty in the fields of sociology of education, child development, migration and multicultural studies.
