The current share of women in the world's international migrant
population is close to one half. Despite the great number of female
migrants and their importance for the development agenda in countries
of origin, there has until recently been a striking lack of gender
analysis in the economic literature on international migration and
development. This volume makes a valuable contribution in this context
by providing eight new studies focusing on the nexus between gender,
international migration, and economic development."
