Migration into Ireland is one of the biggest demographic changes to affect Irish society since the nineteenth century Great Famine. This book reports on social relations between migrant and local children and offers a unique perspective on the migration experience. Based on a large scale, intensive study in inner-city Dublin, this book gives us children's frank and insightful perspectives on multi-ethnic Ireland. Children can be positive and empathic when encountering children from other ethnic communities. However serious tensions can also be detected in the social fabric of multi-cultural schools. There is a marked tendency to stay within one's own cultural group. Hidden from the notice of adults, serious racial bullying can also occur among even very young children. In their own powerful words, children help us to understand some of the key challenges facing this first generation of multi-cultural Ireland.
