The central thesis of Child Migration & Human Rights in a Global Age argues an interesting position. Rather than treating children as subservient dependents of adult migrants, Jacqueline Bhabha makes a compelling case for examining them individually. In many cases, their needs differ starkly from their parents’, and they are especially susceptible to an entirely different collection of dangers. The text is skillfully layered with a legal history of the field, and to maintain its accessibility, the author takes pains to include anecdotes that illustrate “small,” day-to-day tragedies. A particularly tragic example follows the travails of a Somali woman whose efforts to bring her children to Ireland were obstructed by bureaucratic incompetence. Despite a pair of issues that surfaced infrequently—specifically, a rare reliance on oversimplified examples and an overreliance on Western policy—Child Migration is a very accessible, well-grounded introduction to the hazards facing child migrants.
