Migrant children act as 'cultural brokers'

A study by researchers at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland reports that children of Eastern European migrants play a key role as 'cultural brokers' for their families after migration. Although the experiences of migrant children vary findings suggest that children help their parents to mediate access to services and develop social relationships, and that their children's happiness, education and well-being determine whether migrants will return home or stay in the UK.
