This timely Companion traces the interlinking histories of globalisation, gender, and migration in the 21st century, setting up a completely new agenda beyond Western research production. Saskia Sassen and Natalia Ribas-Mateos bring together 27 incisive contributions from leading international experts on gender and global migration, uncovering the multitude of economies, histories, families and working cultures in which local, regional, national, and global economies are embedded.

Examining recent migratory flows and changing migration corridors across the globe, the Companion offers critical insights into the wider dynamics that compel people to migrate. Chapters address key topics relating to gender and global migration, from global cities and border regions, internal displacements, and humanitarian risks, to the changing face of care chains and labour, pandemic mobilities, expulsions from climate change and the weight of colonialism in postcolonial feminism. The volume further explores extractivism, colonial images, the agrifood industry, qualified labour, remittances, cross border trade, and extreme violence. Advancing a compelling range of forward-looking perspectives, this dynamic Companion establishes a novel agenda for future research on gender and global migration.

Integrating empirical case studies with cutting-edge theory, The Elgar Companion to Gender and Global Migration will be an invaluable resource for a multidisciplinary audience of scholars across sociology, geography, economics and political science, as well as migration and gender studies. Its themes will also be of significant interest to policymakers, administrators and grassroots organisations involved in migration.
Critical Acclaim
‘Firmly anchored in critical analysis of women’s migration under 1980s neoliberal globalization and stretching into twenty-first century displacements, violence and migration-care regimes, this volume brings together inquiries spanning across parts of Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. A must read for those seeking new approaches to gender and migration.’
– Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo, University of Southern California, US

‘The editors, both renowned migration and gender scholars, have assembled a hugely impressive array of authors to rethink the global narratives which structure our understanding of gender and migration. Especially innovative is the focus on non-Western settings wherein are explored a wide range of intersecting themes: migration, mobilities, displacement, gender, human rights, development, transnational care, and many more. This is a must-read for students of gendered migrations.’
– Russell King, University of Sussex, UK
