Negotiated Returns: Migration and Deportation of Unaccompanied Youth

“Negotiated Returns” is based on a three-year, multi-sited study that examines deportation from the perspectives of unaccompanied migrant children and youth, who are an understudied and marginalized population. This mixed-methods study traces the rippling, transnational effects of removal on families and communities in southern Mexico and Guatemala. Nestled within a rich literature on post-conflict Central America, the study responds to significant gaps in applied and theoretical knowledge on child migration and deportation and the anthropology of childhood and youth.
