excerpt from the article: …..”emphasis on mobility, and therefore the experiences of less-and-more mobile people, and consequently the way neoliberal and political regimes powerfully shape spatial movements according to geographic and social position is impressive. This evidence contests the popular representation of moving subjects with water-related metaphors (e.g. flows, waves and streams) and arrows to represent ‘copious flows.’ This tends to downplay the complex lived life experiences of the ‘few winners’ engaged in mobility and therefore the ‘many losers’ of globalisation who are unable to move. Fifth, there also appears to be a general sense that many children and young people are active agents, either physically or imaginatively, in migration circuits. This moves us beyond notions of children being passive victims of migration, economic change and globalisation, especially in ‘adult world’ structures (9).”
