The Centre, particularly through research on CEE/CIS has analysed household responses to economic shocks and economic transition, including issues such as changing fertility and marriage responses, institutionalising children, and an initial exploration of how the situation of children affected by migration could be assessed and adverse impact mitigated. IRC research has shown that a number of countries in SEE have seen one-third of their adult populations migrate out of their country of origin on a permanent or temporary basis . For some East Asian countries many thousands of mothers seek overseas temporary employment to mitigate the household poverty situation at home. Specific data on children remains a challenge, including to assess the impact of migration trends on the enjoyment of their rights.
