BRIDGE Cutting edge pack: Gender and migration
Written and produced by BRIDGE, a specialised gender and development research and information service based in the Gender and Sexuality Cluster at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), UK, in collaboration with partners, Cutting Edge Packs provide accessible overviews of the latest thinking on a cutting edge gender theme in development research, policy and practice.
This pack examines questions including: How does migration advance or impede gender equality? How can policy-makers and practitioners promote gender equality in work on migration? Migration can bring new opportunities for greater gender equality and a better life, for those migrating and those they leave behind. It can have positive impacts on sending and receiving areas. However, migration also brings risks, and may entrench inequalities around gender. This pack hopes to inspire thinking on these questions and to present examples of innovative practice.
Each pack includes:
- Overview Report, outlining the main issues, examples of innovative practice and recommendations;
- Supporting Resources Collection including summaries of case studies, tools, online resources, and contact details for relevant organisations;
- Gender and Development In Brief comprising a short overview of the theme and two inspiring case-study articles by Southern-focused practitioners.
Also available in French and Spanish.
