Melissa Noel presents her reporting on the impacts of migration on Caribbean children at Clark Atlanta University on Wednesday, October 24, 2018.
The Caribbean is a region where migration out of economic necessity is extremely common. Typically, such migration is viewed as having positive economic effects, for families and for the region. The negative impact this can have on the well being of children, who are often separated from their parents for several years, is often not taken into account. Noel explores 'barrel children' in her Pulitzer Center-supported project Beyond The Barrels: How Migration Impacts Caribbean Children.
The evening talk is part of a two-day visit to this Campus Consortium partner, where Noel also will visit classes and participate in more informal sessions with students and faculty.
