Our key claims are: 1) that children and their families DID challenge, resist and question the system, though not always expressed through their limited ability to give consent to emigration; 2) that the purported welfarist impulses of child emigration schemes were frequently in tension with the everyday administrative and financial concerns that characterised exchanges over child migrants between state and institution, bespeaking a broader economy of child emigration schemes that has thus far been under-examined in the scholarship.",
