Migration has become a key area of preoccupation for governments, international agencies and human rights activists the world over. This book argues, however, that studies of migration have become too limited in scope, focusing only on the policy demands of governments and humanitarian agencies, rather than assessing the underlying theories, and effects, of human migration. With this as its starting point, this collection of essays sets out to redress this imbalance, tackling the often neglected issue of gender in relation to migration theory. Provocative and intellectually challenging, this book of feminist critical essays is essential reading for both students and academics searching for a new approach to the study of human migration.

About the Editors:

Ingrid Palmary is a senior researcher in the Forced Migration Studies Progamme at the University of the Witwatersrand Johannesburg. She has written on a range of topics including gender based violence in times of armed conflict, the gendered nature of displacement and the intersections of 'domestic' and 'political' violence. She is the co-editor of the forthcoming book International Feminisms.

Peace Kiguwa lectures in Psychology and currently Gender and Human Rights at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. She is co-editor on Critical Psychology and The Gender of Psychology (both UCT press releases). Her research interests include critical studies in race and gender issues. She is currently completing her doctoral thesis in Psychology at the University of the Witwatersrand.

Erica Burman is Professor of Psychology and Women's Studies in Manchester Metropolitan University. As a feminist developmental psychologist, critical social researcher and group analyst, she has written extensively on gender, culture and mental health issues, the role of psychology in international development policy and practice, on the politics and affects of (gendered) representations of childhood (both remembered and depicted) including on relationships between women and children, and on transnational violence and migration as this affects state responses to women and children. Her most recent books Deconstructing Developmental Psychology (Routledge, 2008) and Developments: child, image, nation (Routledge, 2008) reflect these themes.

Khatidja Chantler is a lecturer and researcher in Social Work at the University of Manchester. She has undertaken a range of research projects including Attempted Suicide and Self-harm (S. Asian women); Domestic Violence and Minoritisation; Forced Marriage and Domestic and Sexual Violence in male, black, lesbian, gay and transgendered communities. She is also a counsellor and supervisor and has worked in health and social care settings for over 25 years. Publications include: British, European and International journal articles; book chapters and co-authored books: Attempted Suicide and Self-harm: South Asian Women and Domestic Violence and Minoritisation.
