Understanding African Migration: Intergenerational Relations, Citizenship and Belonging in a Comparative Context
Uniquely this book set out to explore African migration from an intergenerational perspective in the context of its south-north as well as its south-south trajectories where ‘south’ arbitrarily but unambiguously refers to the African continent and ‘north’ to the UK and France (see Blakewell (2009) for a detailed critical discussion on the south-north categorisation). It does so from the lived experiences of two-generational migrant families and how they negotiate belonging and citizenship. Linking these macro-level migration trajectories and their respective subsequent migration regimes with the micro-level intergenerational lived experiences of the respondents provides a deeper understanding of the dynamics of global migration and its related settlement experiences and familial relationships.
