Bielicki, Dragana Kovacevic: Born in Yugoslavia - Raised in Norway
Former Child Refugees and Belonging
This book is based on a qualitative study of immigrants´ collective identifications and the ways in which belonging and othering are expressed in their narrative discourse.
The main material comes from in-depth interviews with former child refugees from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, residing in Norway. The individuals’ representations of belonging are examined in light of the violent conflict that lead to their migration, their personal immigration experiences and their time growing up and residing in Norway.
