Abstract or Description

Sara R. Farris interrogates contemporary debates on migration and development by highlighting the role played by gender. She focuses on female migration to Europe with an historical and sociological perspective, showing how the number of women involved in international migrations has dramatically increased in the last 20 years. She analyses the main patterns of female migration and the challenges and specificities associated with the increasing presence of women in the receiving countries. She then shows how this growth in female migration is associated with development by drawing examples from recent literature and especially from South Asian contexts.
