Here to stay? Identity, belonging and citizenship among Eastern European settled migrant children in the UK (a decade after EU enlargement)

Eastern Europeans who have arrived in the UK in the past decade are the fastest growing ethnic groups in the UK. This study will be the first to focus specifically on Eastern European migrant children who have lived in the UK for at least three years, and to compare their everyday lives and sense of cultural and national identity and belonging in Scotland and England. The aim is to inform public debate, policymakers and service providers on the issue of children of Eastern European migrants settled in Britain. It will promote social inclusion by exploring the experiences of settled migrant children in relation to the distinct discourses around migration, identity and citizenship in the UK, and by ensuring that voices of children from the “new” minority groups are taken into account in current debates on national identity.
