Gender on the Move: Working on the Migration-Development Nexus from a Gender Perspective

Published By: UN Women | Published Date: January, 01 , 2013

Around the world, a record number of women are now migrating to seek work and better lives. For many, migration yields these benefits; for others, it carries dangerous risks, such as exploitation in domestic work, and vulnerability to violence. Migration policies and practices have been slow to recognize these risks and take steps to make the process safe for women. Migration and remittances have great potential to contribute to development, but also present new challenges. The training manual "Gender on the Move: Working on the Migration-Development Nexus from a Gender Perspective", aims to build the gender analysis capacity of those working in the field of migration and development to bring about a model of development that is centered on people, human rights, and on the principle of gender equality.
