Migrant youth mobility in Europe: patterns, processes and consequences

Project description

How moving affects immigrant children

Moving can be stressful, especially for children. For immigrant children, moving within their host country may cause even more anxiety. When does childhood internal mobility have negative consequences? Are there differences in consequences for those of immigrant and non-immigrant background? Does the number of moves or the reason for moving make a difference? Is the age at which moving takes place decisive and is it distance relevant? The EU-funded MYMOVE project will answer these questions. It will map childhood internal mobility patterns and study the mid- and long-term consequences for diverse immigrant groups and natives. It will also consider the impact of factors like family background, individual characteristics, and the neighbourhood of origin and destination.
