English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 244 Pages | ISBN : 3319766562 | 4.34 MB


This volume documents the life uncertainties revealed by migrants' biographies. For international migrants, life journeys are less conventional or patterned, while their family, work, and educational trajectories are simultaneously more fragmented and intermingled. The authors discuss the challenges faced by migrants and returnees when trying to make sense of their life courses after years of experience in other countries with different age norms and cultural values.
