TCRA, TCRAf-Eu and TCRA-SAN are three research programmes focusing on Transnational Child-Raising Arrangements between Africa and Europe.

TCRA’s are the way parents who migrate organize the care for their children who stay behind. Such families in which (one or both) parents live seperated from their children, are called ‘transnational families’.

Here you can find general information on the research programmes including publications, events, data & codebooks , links & downloads and the photo gallery.

More detailed information on the individual programmes as well as all partnering institutions is available under: TCRA and TCRAf-Eu and TCRA-SAN.
