Improbable agents of empire: coming to terms with British child migration

By Kristen Rundle


Prompted by the occasion of Gordon Brown’s parliamentary apology to British child migrants in February 2010, Rundle reflects upon the experience of her grandfather who was sent to Australia as a child migrant in 1934. Integrating research from family records, government documents and her own background as a legal scholar, she explores the social and political architectures that facilitated the child migration scheme during her grandfather’s time, and which constituted distinctive conditions of vulnerability from which some families of child migrants are yet to recover
