Chimienti, Milena (Haute école de travail social HETS Genève, HES-SO) ; Bloch, Alice (Sociology Department, School of Social Sciences, The University of Manchester) ; Ossipow, Laurence (Haute école de travail social HETS Genève, HES-SO) ; Wihtol de Wenden, Catherine (Centre d’études et de recherches internationales CERI-UMR / CNRS – Sciences Po Paris)

This introduction to the special issue provides a critical state-of-the-art of the literature on second-generation migrants which has hitherto subsumed the case of the children of refugees. It highlights the theoretical and methodological orientations taken by the literature and examines the main findings on the second generation’s social, educational, economic, cultural and inter-generational lives, before turning to the few findings available on conditions and performances of children of refugees. The editorial concludes by suggesting gaps in our knowledge and areas for future research.
