Abstract

This brief summarizes evidence from Latin America and the Caribbean on the effects of parental migration on children who ‘stay behind’. It is based on studies in English and Spanish found as part of a review of recent literature on children’s experiences of migration in the region. It is important to note that this focus emerged from a wider literature review. This brief is not based on an exhaustive review but seeks to draw out key themes emerging from the literature.
