Transition to adulthood of former unaccompanied minors - new ESRC grant

Posted on Monday 30th June 2014

Dr Nando Sigona is co-PI on a new ESRC research project on young migrants subject to immigration control in Europe. Dr Sigona will work with Dr Elaine Chase (PI) at the Oxford Institute of Social Policy and Professor Dawn Chatty at the Refugee Studies Centre, both at the University of Oxford.

The project addresses a significant gap in our understanding of what happens to young people subject to immigration control once they 'become adult'. It explores young people's own conceptions of their futures, how these are formed and the factors which may influence and affect their ability to realise these future plans over time.
