Migration governance and undocumented migrant children


While the UK government launches yet another high-profile public campaign against unauthorized immigrants, the US Congress discusses an immigration reform that would give millions of undocumented migrants a pathway to citizenship and benefit especially young adults. Sam talks to Dr Nando Sigona, Birmingham Fellow and Lecturer in the School of Social Policy and the Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) at the University of Birmingham. Nando tells us about the limits of a ‘law and order’ approach to migration governance and his research on undocumented migrant children, citizenship and immigration enforcement. His book ‘Sans papiers: The social and economic life of undocumented migrants’, written with Professor Alice Bloch (University of Manchester) and Professor Roger Zetter (University of Oxford) will be published by Pluto Press in 2014.
