      FEMINIST ECONOMICS
      CALL FOR PAPERS

      A SPECIAL ISSUE ON GENDER AND INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION

      Guest Editors
      Lourdes BenerĂ­a, Carmen Diana Deere, and Naila Kabeer

      From the last decades of the 20th century to the
      present, globalization and the spread of
      neoliberal policies across countries have
      resulted in an unprecedented rise in the
      asymmetrical mobility between capital and labor.
      International migration has become a topic of
      intense political debate due to, among other
      factors, the tension between the increase in the
      numbers of international migrants and the
      obstacles faced by them to enter and settle where
      they choose to work and live. These tensions have
      raised important issues - economic, social,
      cultural, and political - that require a gender
      perspective.

      This special issue of Feminist Economics intends to motivate both research
      and action, generating a discussion on the ways in which gender is an
      important dimension from which general and specific migration issues can be
      analyzed. We expect theoretical contributions as well as empirical analyses.
      The following themes are of particular interest:
      * Rethinking theory on labor and capital mobility
      * Periodization of migration and its feminization processess
      * The care economy, women, and migration
      * The globalization of reproduction and transnational mothering
      * What happens to the children left behind?
      * Remittances and development: the role of women
      * Migration and "the nomad worker"
      * Poverty and migration
      * The challenges of social protection for migrant workers
      * Internal versus international migration
      * Engendering national/regional immigration policy and political debates

      Deadline for abstracts: 15 September 2009.

      Papers will be due in May 2010. Please direct queries and abstracts (500
      words maximum) to Guest
      Editors Lourdes BenerĂ­a (lb21@... <lb21%40cornell.edu>) and
      Naila Kabeer (N.Kabeer@... <N.Kabeer%40ids.ac.uk>). Final papers
      (after approval of abstracts) should be submitted
      to Feminist Economics through the submissions
      website (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rfec).
      Questions about these procedures may be sent to
      feministeconomics@... <feministeconomics%40rice.edu>, +1.713.348.4083
