New Book: Migrant Youth, Transnational Families, and the State

Migrant Youth, Transnational Families, and the State:
Care and Contested Interests

Lauren Heidbrink

Announcing the very timely publication of a new book on unaccompanied children and detention, Migrant Youth, Transnational Families, and the State: Care and Contested Interests. Written by anthropologist Lauren Heidbrink, this compelling ethnography draws on U.S. historical, political, legal, and institutional practices to contextualize the lives of children and youth as they move through federal detention facilities, immigration and family courts, federal foster care programs, and their communities across the United States and Central America.
