This study sought to explore how research into transnational and migrant families might benefit from an account of Arab-Muslim families and their children's experiences in dynamic and conflictual contexts. Ten transnational families and their children narrate their lives as part of transnational families. From their stories and the analysis thereof, we learn how they negotiate the unique positions they occupy in transnational families and gain insight into how their cultural identities are shaped. This study also explores shared and distinctive transnational family experiences which were identified despite the small size of the sample, and emphasizes how each family and each child possesses unique resources with which they confront familial and sociocultural challenges. This study argues that social scientists, educators, and policymakers concerned about migration have much to learn from these experiences. This research also suggests that Arab-Muslim transnational families and their children's voices and lived experiences can help reframe current understandings of the effects of immigration and education systems on families in Ireland and internationally, and identifies several implications for future research and theorizing about the civic participation and engagement of children whose parents are transnational migrants.
