Summary/Abstract: This chapter examines drawings and mental maps made by children (used alongside with conventional interviewing techniques) as method of investigating migrant children sense of belonging. Children’s visual methods have gained renewed interest as many social scientists search for methods that align with the current conceptualisation of children as social agents and cultural producers. Drawing upon a qualitative study of Migration and the Integration of Polish families and children in Scotland, I analyse children's presence and participation in processes of transnational migration, giving some empirical example of how visual methods can be evaluated as a research strategy.
