I am a researcher in the Horizon 2020 project EMpowerment through liquid Integration of Migrant Youth in vulnerable conditions (MIMY) (mimy-project.eu).
My Doctoral dissertation discussed the experiences of undocumented migrant children and families everyday lives. Children’s rights are crucial in the everyday struggles of undocumented migrant children and families, yet rights are also mobilised for migration control. Equally, whilst undocumented migrant children are labelled as vulnerable, often their parents are demonized. A central cause of undocumented migrant children’s vulnerability are the hostile policies created by states who, in turn, use that vulnerability to rationalise the governing of their mobility and territorial presence. The paradoxical politics of undocumented migrant childhoods are examined in my thesis, through an analysis that contrasts the arguments and practices of state actors with the experiences of undocumented migrant children and families in Sweden and the UK. Through this analysis, the political character of agency, rights and vulnerability emerges, and the limitations and opportunities for change are revealed.
