Irrespective of the causes of migration, there are a combination of factors that may play out differently for men and women at every stage of the migration cycle. While in many cases migration can improve the conditions of women’s life by providing more income and social status, in other cases – especially if they are irregular migrants – they may also face abuse and discrimination.

This international conference invites expert contributions on the following areas:

  • Transnationalism, diasporas and gender
  • Gender and labour migration
  • Gender-based violence and forced migration
  • Migration and gender in the media
