MIGRATION is a multidisciplinary journal specializing in international migratory issues, particularly those related to Spain. It was founded in 1996 by the University Institute of Studies on Migration at Comillas Pontifical University with the aim of offering academics in the field of Spanish migration a place to publish their work. Since then, thanks to its readers, the Spring and Autumn editions have continued,enabling the journal to become, both in Spain and abroad, an indispensable benchmark for issues of this nature.
Faithful to its beginnings, when it was known as an open space for intercommunication between those passionate about international migration, MIGRATION continues to welcome the collaborative pieces that are sent in.

The aim of this monograph was to offer an insight into the process of how the young children of immigrants are incorporated into adult life. It explores their educational background and integration into the labor market; their family unit who set many social benchmarks and acceptances and their perceptions and strategies concerning their transition into adult life. In this regard, the monograph unveils a complex constellation of contextual and immediate determiners that influence the citizenization of this youth or the shaping of future ethnic minorities, with the personal and social risk that this entails.
