This session presents results from the “Gendered Dynamics of International Labour Migration” project studying the economic and socio-cultural practices, including gender discrimination, of female international labour migration, and their experiences during Covid-19. It includes results from interviews conducted with female migrants and NGOs in major cities in Turkey (Istanbul), Pakistan (Islamabad), Kurdistan Iraq (Erbil) and Lebanon (Beirut).
This research contributes to a better and decentred understanding of gendered migration beyond the typical focus on movements from the Global South to the North, but encompassing South-South and North-South migrations and covering a range of employment and diversity of situations beyond the commonly studied domestic and care sectors.
