Ethnographic Approach, Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, 38 (6), pp.
|Abstract: ||This paper explores the methodological challenges of doing research with
transnational children. It outlines a range of strategies that researchers might
employ, whilst also reflecting on the issues that such strategies raise. It
argues that an ethnographic approach, combining interviews with participant
observation, can enable a fuller understanding of the wider implications of the
specific local context, at both the sender and the destination communities.
Ethnographic research can lead to a more holistic exploration of children's
everyday lives as transnational migrants, by exploring different arenas of their
daily lives and not just concentrating on their work or education. This paper
considers the methodological and practical aspects involved in seeking multiple
perspectives of transnational migration. It is based on a longitudinal
ethnographic study of Bolivian children's experiences of migration in Argentina.|
