    This Overview Report on Gender and Migration takes a broad approach to migration – it looks at the gender dynamics of both international and the lesser-researched internal migration and the interconnections between the two. People may choose to migrate, or have no choice, or the decision may fall somewhere on the continuum between the two. The book examines commonalities and differences in the operation of various structures of power (gender, class, race/ethnicity, generation) and their interactions within the institutional domains of intra-national and especially inter-national migration that produce context-specific forms of social injustice.

    This chapter discusses the gendered character of the migration process. The history of migration has in some respects been the ‘poor relation’ of imperial history generally, and more specifically of gender and Empire. Until about the last four decades, the study of migration shared the prevailing gender blindness in academic disciplines, and as gender emerged as a category of analysis. Presenting the first book-length account of the global race for talent from a gender perspective, Gender, migration and the global race for talent will be read by graduate students, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners in the fields of immigration studies, political science, public policy, sociology and gender studies, and Australian.

      Gender roles, relations, and ideologies are major aspects of migration. This timely book argues that understanding gender relations is vital to a full and more nuanced explanation of both the causes and the consequences of migration, in the past and at present. Through an exploration of gendered labor markets, laws and policies, and the transnational model of migration, Caroline Brettell Author: Caroline B. Brettell. Get this from a library!

Emphasizing intersectionality between gender and migration, the book highlights women’s experiences holistically and also shows how migration is closely aligned to trafficking.

Book Description. Intersectionality can be used to analyse whether migration leads to changes in gender relations. This book finds out how migrants from a peri-urban neighbourhood on the outskirts of Cochabamba, Bolivia, make sense of the migration journeys they have undertaken.

(The Law and Politics Book Review) "Benhabib and Resnik Gender and Migration book succeeded admirably in their aspiration ‘to reorient the lively debate concerning globalization, borders, migration and citizenship’ With the appearance of this volume, the debate will never be the same.

It deserves to become an integral part of the global migration studies syllabus." - Helma Lutz, author of The New Maids. The book is a well-written and timely addition to the growing body of literature on gender and migration, extending the analysis to include feminist practice and the challenges that this poses.

The depth of the material in this volume, particularly on the contradictions and complexities of migration, will appeal to feminist and migration. While gender provides the conceptual tool for mapping differential experiences of social reality, by identifying poverty and migration as significant axes around which social relations and processes unfold, the volume unravels the complex layers of needs, networks and choices that come into play in poverty-driven migration.

Around the world, more people are on the move than ever before. Many of them are seeking new opportunities and a better life for themselves and their families. Others are forced to move due to disaster or conflict.
