This paper focuses on the ways in which the politics of migration impacts upon the everyday geographies of immigrant young people living in Ireland. We contrast the ways in which young people's participation in socio-spatial practices, at varying scales, are shaped in different ways specifically because of the immigration procedures they are subjected to. We draw on material from a longitudinal, qualitative research project in which we have used a range of participatory methods with young people aged 13 to 18 who are living in Ireland.
