about this item
This book presents a close look at young people who migrate, without adult accompaniment, to more economically developed countries either as asylum-seekers or trafficked labor. Though they arrive in their new countries as children, eventually they will be adults, at which point they will be criminally liable in immigration court, potentially facing forced removal. What identities do these young people have or acquire? What narratives do they present, and into what framework of culture, care, and legislation are they placed? And what does the treatment of this group tell us about legal and care infrastructures, and the cultural pre-suppositions on which they depend?
