New Dynamics in Female Migration and Integration

Ed. Christiane Timmerman, Marco Martiniello, Andrea Rea, Johan Wets
Routledge Research in Gender and Society

This book explores the dynamic interplay between cross-national and cross-cultural patterns of female migration, integration and social change, by focusing on the specific case of Belgium. It provides insight into the dynamic interplay between gender and migration, and especially contributes to the knowledge of how migration changes gender relations in Belgium, as well as in the regions of origin. To this end, an analytical model for conducting gender-sensitive migration research is developed out of an initial theory-driven conceptual model. The researchers reveal similarities and differences across national backgrounds, disclosing the underlying, more "universal" gender dynamics.
