All rights reserved.This paper presents an analysis of 179 interviews with children who lived in the United States and then returned to Mexico following various itineraries. This article seeks to discover the knowledge children accumulate about international migration¿i.e., what do they know about migration? All the interviewed children received part of their education in the United States; that is why this article classifies them as members of the 0.5 generation. This definition allows the formulation of the question in a clearer manner: What knowledge of everyday life have children developed about international migration movements?
