Gendered Migrations and Global Processes

Part of the Migration, Diasporas and Citizenship Series book series (MDC)


The growing interest in gendered migrations within a global system tended to focus on movements from the Global South to the Global North (Castles and Miller 1993; Morokvasic 1984; Phizacklea 1983). As migration came to be incorporated into analyses of globalisation and a significant dimension of Northern societies, so it increasingly connoted the international, thus instituting a clear demarcation between internal and international migrations and a corresponding division amongst the researchers who studied them. So too did a divide crystallise between those studying receiving and sending countries. The corollary of these divisions has meant that the multiplicity of migrations in the South was not seen as being shaped by and shaping an evolving globalisation.
