Migration has become a key area of preoccupation for governments, international agencies and human rights activists the world over. This book argues, however, that studies of migration have become too limited in scope, focusing on the policy demands of governments and humanitarian agencies.


Migration has become a key area of preoccupation for governments, international agencies and human rights activists the world over. This book argues, however, that studies of migration have become too limited in scope, focusing only on the policy demands of governments and humanitarian agencies, rather than assessing the underlying theories, and effects, of human migration. With this as its starting point, this collection of essays sets out to redress this imbalance, tackling the often neglected issue of gender in relation to migration theory. Provocative and intellectually challenging, this book of feminist critical essays is essential reading for both students and academics searching for a new approach to the study of human migration.
