'Adolescent Girls' Migration in the Global South'

ISS lecturer Katarzyna Grabska has co-authored a book entitled 'Adolescent Girls' Migration in the Global South' on concepts of adolescence and adulthood for girls are being transformed in the context of migration.

Along with co-authors Marina de Regt, and Nicoletta del Franco, Grabska provides a nuanced, complex, comparative analysis of adolescent girls’ migration and mobility in the Global South.

The main argument of the book is that migration of adolescent girls intersects with other important transitions in their lives, such as those related to education, work, marriage and childbearing, and that this affects their transition into adulthood in various ways.

While migration is sometimes negative, it can also offer girls new and better opportunities with positive implications for their future lives.
