Information: This special issue will focus on new cutting edge research into the complex nature of migrant youth settlement in multicultural émigré societies. Drawing on research from diverse contexts, it will explore the latest intersecting theories on cultural diversity, intercultural relations and multiculturalism in the context of globalised cities where access to and sharing of public spaces is becoming a highly contested issue. The special issue will report empirical findings of recent research into migrant youth and everyday multiculturalism providing nuanced analyses of multifaceted connections, practices and adaptations. It will focus on both local approaches to social inclusion of young migrants in culturally diverse social milieus, as well as global insights into their transnational practices and movements, and the ways these connections impact upon notions of identity and local attachment. As much of young peoples’ local and transnational networking occurs online, this special issue will also examine the way in which young migrants use social media to engage with one another and also with broader social issues. This special issue can thereby assist migrant communities, agencies and policy makers to better address challenges of social inclusion faced my migrant youth in multicultural societies.
