Overview

The majority of the world’s refugees are females and they represent the epitome of marginalization and disenfranchisement. This volume takes up the crucial issue of the gendered character of conflict-driven migration. The contributors highlight the importance of ‘taking gender seriously’ in migration research to improve both migration theory and conflict research. The volume provides critical insights into how to shore up women’s rights in conflict and post-conflict situations by focusing on the way the experience of dislocation ‘infantalises’ and disempowers women in particular.

Refugee Survey Quarterly
The volume attempts to break the homogeneity of state discourses by bringing in women’s experiences. The attempt is to study the uniqueness of women migrants and to highlight the particular conditions women are subjected to in conflict situations, the blurring of divisions of their private sphere as opposed to that of male migrants and the survival strategies adopted by them. Given the uneasy relationship between the state, citizenship and national honour on one hand and women migrant victims of conflict on the other, the contributors underline the need for national and regional gender asylum laws in view of the gendered nature of refugee laws.
The Hindustan Times
The essays in this book…[examine] the changes in status, identities and power relations among women and men as they move from a conflict situation at home, to migrant camps, to the post-conflict or peace-building phase when they return home. It will appeal to scholars of migration studies, gender studies, peace and conflict studies, sociology, human rights and political science and to social activists and policymakers involved in shaping refugee laws and managing humanitarian aid to refugees.
