I am accepting original submissions of research-based studies on gender and youth migration around the world. Young people, those under 35 years old, migrate with their families or on their own for various reasons — for example, education, work, asylum, and even as a consequence of environment disasters. However, their migration is often considered in migration discourse as part of a family unit thus erasing the particularities of their experiences and specificities of their challenges and opportunities. How females, males and transgender youth (LGBTQ) experience the journey, both domestic and international migration, is the focus of this collection. Any topic or thematic areas of interest are welcome at this point.

Please submit a 500-word abstract of your proposed contribution to this book collection to using the subject heading: youth migration.

Also include your current affiliation and position, contact email, and a short description of your research interests and, if applicable, published works.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is January 30, 2015.

Only those contributors with accepted abstracts will be notified by February 25, 2015.

Full-length book chapters of about 6,000 words (excluding references) should be ready by June 30, 2015.

Final approval of submitted book chapters rest with the publisher.
