Gendered Dynamics of International Labour Migration

The research seeks to contribute to a gender-sensitive understanding of the interaction between economic and socio-cultural drivers of labour migrations in different cities in Kurdistan, Iraq; Lebanon; Pakistan; Turkey. In particular the project will lead to a better understanding of how migrant women use urban spaces. Based on stakeholder consultation and fieldwork interviews with migrant women, the project will produce academic publications and policy papers along with stakeholder workshops and training for researchers engaged with gendered labour migration and urban change.
