Résumé : This chapter summarises the book’s findings on the migratory experiences of 1.5-generation Filipinos and discusses their theoretical and methodological implications. It gives a special attention to the diversified ways in which young Filipinos have constructed and reconstructed their social lives and (re)made their sense of self before and after their migration. The chapter explains how these processes are related to the structural conditions in their destination countries as well as to their life experiences in their homeland. By highlighting the shifting, contingent, contextual and relational nature of identification and relatedness of 1.5-generation Filipinos, the chapter illuminates the heuristic power of the “mobile childhoods” conceptual lens and proposes future research directions concerning the study of childhoods in family migrations and family in children’s migration.
