The International Migration of Women: Future Directions for Research and Policy

Tuesday, December 18, 2007 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The current share of women in the world’s international migrant population is close to one half. Despite the great number of female migrants, there has until recently been a striking lack of gender analysis in the economic literature on international migration and development. A book just published by the World Bank, The International Migration of Women, provides six new studies focusing on the nexus between gender, international migration and economic development. 

At this brownbag seminar on Tuesday, December 18, 2007, the researchers responsible for the book presented some of their main findings and policy implications, as well as highlighting several research questions that remain open. The seminar featured Andrew Morrison, Gender and Development Group, World Bank; Maurice Schiff, Development Research Group, World Bank;   and Mirja Sjöblom, Development Research Group, World Bank. The discussion was moderated by Michael Clemens, Research Fellow, Center for Global Development.
