Editorial: Changing migration patterns and responses in the context of child and youth forced migration
Dona, G. 2006. Editorial: Changing migration patterns and responses in the context of child and youth forced migration. International Journal of Migration, Health and Social Care. 2 (2), pp. 2-6.
In an interdependent world, migration is both symbol and symptom of the way in which individuals and societies inter-relate, a measure of the degree of success or failure in multi-cultural living, transnational relations and social inclusion or exclusion. At the end of 2005, the Global Commission on International Migration published a report, Migration in an Interconnected World; New Directions for Action. The report identifies new types of mobility and responses to it, and concludes that international migration is one of the most controversial areas of policy and practice facing almost all countries. This editorial article introduces an issue of the International Journal of Migration, Health and Social Care which focuses on child and youth migration and the changing trends and responses to this issue.
