Gender and Development – Current Issue

Drawing on insights gained over the 13 years since the journal last published an issue on migration – a period which has seen a gradual ‘feminisation’ of migration, and an increased focus on the benefits that migration can bring to development in the ‘sending’ communities – the March 2011 issue of Gender & Development, brings together research from across a range of countries, and looks at migration not only as a livelihoods strategy, undertaken primarily for economic reasons, but also as a response to crisis, where people have relatively little, or no, option but to leave their homes.
