Concluding Thoughts and Pathways for Future Research

  • Zaheera Jinnah


This book includes case studies based on empirical research of gender and migration in South Africa, Congo, Burundi, Zimbabwe, Pakistan, India, Tunisia, Senegal, Morocco and Somalia. It examines patterns, outcomes and everyday experiences of migrant women within Africa, from north and central Africa to Europe, and from South Asia to South Africa. Although not exhaustive, this volume presents the most comprehensive selection of case studies on gender and migration across the continent.
