This collection provides new interdisciplinary and empirically-grounded insights into the issues surrounding gender and migration into and within Europe. The work presents a comprehensive and critical overview of the historical, legal, policy and cultural framework underpinning different types of European migration. The authors analyse the impact of migration on women's careers; the impact of migration on family life; and gender perspectives on forced migration.

The volume also examines the consequences of EU enlargement for women's migration opportunities and practices, as well as the impact of new regulatory mechanisms at EU level in addressing issues of forced migration and cross-national family breakdown. Recent interdisciplinary research also offers new insight into the issue of skilled migration and the gendering of previously male-dominated sectors of the labour market.
