About girls and transitions

How can we support the educational transitions of migrant background girls? How are their dreams and aspirations heard in the study guidance and counseling? Marja-Liisa Mäkelä and Mira Kalalahti discusses these themes in their novel article and emphasis the need to understanding the bounded agency and the ways in which gender and family background are expressed in the modalities of the agency. The study shows that although the experienced agency is universal among the age group, there are specific ethnic and gender connotations.
