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.
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.
"The author uses a variety of feminist research methods, examines the ethical dilemmas faced by researchers, and addresses conceptual issues and policy implications in an interdisciplinary perspective these studies help readers better understand the dynamics of the conflict-induced migration of women, and the significance of gender and conflict in migration research and theory. An important contribution to migration and feminist studies. Highly recommended."
