This volume demonstrates the ways in which a gender perspective has been incorporated into existing themes and methods of migration research and has also led to the development of new areas of interest. It draws together the most important published articles on gender and migration in North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia in order to highlight major theoretical developments relating to employment, gender relations, household organisation, identity, citizenship, transnationalism and migration policy. In the introduction the editors provide an overview of these key developments in gender and migration research, as well as suggesting topics for future research. Gender and Migration will be a valuable resource for demographers, geographers and gender studies researchers.

`. . . introduces the reader to a range of informative, interesting, persuasive and well-argued papers on gender and migration. As such, it represents an important and overdue acknowledgement of the centrality of gender to explanations and accounts of international migration.' -- Allen White, Progress in Human Geography `This collection belongs on migration researchers' shelves, and should be adopted as the primary text in seminars on gender and migration. But it should also be read more widely than its title implies, because the work collected suggests future directions for a range of various subfields within the discipline. The editors have done the discipline a service by bringing together such a powerful collection of writings, and by organizing this research under the rubric of gender and migration studies.' -- Rachel Silvey, Annals of the Association of American Geographers
