Migrant Families and Transcultural Dynamics

Resources, Gender Relations and Family Structures

Edited by Lydia Potts and Ulrike Lingen-Ali

Transcript-Verlag

Migration affects migrants' families and family relations in complex and diverse ways. Family fragmentation lasting for years or even decades and access to citizenship and welfare state resources change concepts of parenting and care as well as gender relations. In this volume, authors from Europe, the MENA region, and North America discuss the diversity and dynamics of migrant families, including the individual and collective challenges, strategies, and agencies. They focus on gender dimensions and crisis intervention.
