- ItemChildren of the diaspora: coming home to 'my own country'?(Routledge, 2011) Ní Laoire, Caitríona; Carpena-Méndez, Fina; Tyrrell, Naomi; White, Allen; Sixth Framework ProgrammeThis chapter focuses on an invisible child migrant population, that is, children who migrated to Ireland with Irish return migrant parents. It explores the complex nature of these children's negotiations of identity and belonging, problematising notions of unproblematic belonging for children of return migrants, and thus problematising ethno-national definitions of belonging.
- ItemChildren, cousins and clans: the role of extended family and kinship in the lives of children in returning Irish migrant families(Routledge, 2014-11-13) Ní Laoire, Caitríona; Connolly, LindaThis chapter considers the role of extended family and kinship in the experiences of children who move to Ireland as part of return migrant families. Evidence suggests that children who were born outside Ireland and moved there as children with Irish return migrant parents during the economic boom comprise a significant, though under-acknowledged, demographic group (Ní Laoire et al 2011). Positioned simultaneously as children in Irish families, and migrants to Ireland, they provide a unique perspective on family dynamics and structures of belonging in contemporary Irish society.
- ItemYoung people, intergenerationality and the familial reproduction of transnational migrations and immobilities(Edward Elgar Publishing, 2023-03-17) Ní Laoire, CaitríonaThis chapter explores the role of intergenerationality in migration, highlighting the ways in which migrations and im/mobilities unfold and reverberate over generations within families. It presents a discussion of existing literature together with findings from qualitative research (including a longitudinal component) with multigenerational transnational Irish families, in order to develop a conceptualisation of transgenerational reproduction of migration and im/mobilities. In particular, it explores the potential for transnationalism, diaspora and mobilities perspectives to shed light on these dynamics. The chapter focuses on how young people from migrant backgrounds engage with their familial migration histories and legacies as they forge their own life-paths. It argues that migrant family background shapes the structural possibilities and im/mobility dispositions of young people who grow up in migrant/transnational families, through intergenerational relations and transmission of capital.
