This study examines how African-Chinese families navigate everyday life, including work, family and children’s education. It is based on ethnographic fieldwork comprising observations and in-depth interviews with African-Chinese families and one community leader. These reveal how families confront the pervasiveness of legal, economic and social precarization in multiple overlapping domains.
