Migration is not a new phenomenon in Iran. However, during recent years and due to severalreasons including financial hardships and social suppression, the number of Iranian familieswho migrate to other countries has been increasing steadily. Norway is one of the populardestinations among Iranians. No matter the reason or procedure of migration, immigrants facemultiple difficult circumstances such as economic or social challenges.The purpose of this study is to investigate the lived experiences of Iranian migrants, bothchildren and their parents. It aims to learn about how they perceive some aspects of social lifeand integration process. In additions, this study strives to provide an image of how theirknowledge of coming from a quite different cultural and value system, is implemented in thecontext of a new society and shapes their current social experiences of living in Norway.The research was conducted in Trondheim, Norway and the participants were 9 Iranian familieswho migrated to Norway over the course of the last twenty years. The sample consisted of 27participants, including 10 children (3 males and 7 females) and 17 parents (8 males and 9females). Given the fact that this is a qualitative study, participatory methods such as individualinterviews, focus group discussions and essay writing were methods of data collection used inorder to give participants the opportunity to voice and share their own perspectives about theresearch questions.The theoretical foundations of the study revolve around social studies of children and childhood,family sociology and generational order, integration theory and the concept of agency. Thesetheories served the research as lenses through which to interpret the fieldwork data.The findings of this research present diverse daily challenges that child and adult participantsdeal with. The challenges range from language acquisition to hardships of socially mingling withthe locals in the host society. The severity and deep effects of challenges on Iranian immigrantson both individual and family levels, are the main findings of the study. Additionally, researchfindings elaborate on the strategies used by participants to overcome the challenges ofmigration such as learning social and cultural codes.The study suggests that since social and cultural integration of the immigrants is a two-waystreet imposing responsibility on both immigrants and the host society, awareness of theadvantages of a diverse community should increase by more extensive governmental andmedia efforts. For this reason, I desire my research to help upgrade the status of social life andintegration of immigrant families in Norway, as well as to contribute to the growing body of thesocial studies of children and childhood.
