Katartzi, Eugenia (2017) Young migrants’ narratives of collective identifications and belonging. Childhood: A journal of global child research. pp. 1-13. ISSN 0907-5682

The article sheds light on the intricate relationship between migration, ‘identity’ and belonging by focusing on young migrants in the context of Greek society. Based upon a qualitative study of youth identities, the key objective is to examine their collective identifications, formed through the dialectic of self-identification and categorization. The analysis of young migrants’ narratives unpacks how their sense of belonging and emotional attachments to their countries of origin and
settlement are mediated by processes of racialization and ‘othering’.
