Lunch meeting: Homeless Roma in Copenhagen: Perspectives on child/parent relations in contexts of migration

Camilla Ida Ravnbøl, Dept of Anthropology, Copenhagen University

Date Wed 29 Sep
Time 12:00 13:15
Location Room D118 (DPU Emdrup)

This presentation presents ethnography collected since 2014 among poor Roma families who travel between Romania and Denmark. The children in these families are usually left behind in Romania, under the care of elderly relatives, when the parents travel to Denmark to live in homelessness and work with scrap collection. In this presentation, Camilla describes the hopes, dreams and ambivalent decisions that have influenced the relationships between the parents and their children over the course of the past eight years.
