Sigona, N., & Hughes, V. (2012). No way out, no way in: Irregular migrant children and families in the UK



Abstract/Description: This report was written as part of a comparative project on irregular migrant children in the US and the UK. It examins the ways in which lack of legal residence status is experienced by migrant children and their families in the UK, and how these intersect with ‘race’, country of origin, ethnicity, gender, religion, poverty and housing. It also explores the challenges faced by service providers in working with this client group.
