Today, half of the world’s migrants are female, amounting to 114 million individuals in 2017. The intersection between migration and gender has profound consequences for individuals: gender affects, amongst others migration motifs, selection into migration, as well as decisions on destination countries. Further, the experiences in the host country are gender-specific and especially so when looking at employment, education, or household production.
For this workshop, we seek contributions from junior researchers (PhD students and Post-Docs), whose quantitative research deals with this intersection and interdependence of migration and gender. The workshop will take place virtually on May 6, 2021. Each participant is invited to give a short presentation (15 minutes) followed by comments and feedback from two invited speakers as well as the other participants of the workshop. We invite quantitative research from a wide range of disciplines such as sociology, economics, demography, political science, development studies, and cultural studies. The workshop invites research on topics such as but not limited to:
These topics should in some way be looked at through the lens of gender.
With this workshop, we hope to foster exchange on the latest, cutting-edge quantitative migration research focusing on gender-related aspects and start a discussion on future research potentials in this area. The workshop is kindly funded by the Akademie für Soziologie.
Applications should include a short abstract (300 words) and be submitted here by March 1, 2021. We look forward to receiving your contributions!
