Gender-Based Violence in Migration

Gewalt gegen Frauen / genderspezifische Gewalt / Strukturelle Gewalt / Migration / Migrantin / Migrationspolitik / Menschenhandel / Asyl / Österreich / Kanada / Frankreich / Israel / Norwegen

With contributions from a diverse array of international scholars, this edited volume offers a renewed understanding of gender-based violence (GBV) by examining its social and political dimensions in migration contexts. This book engages micro, meso, and macro levels of analysis by foregrounding a conceptualization of GBV that addresses both its interpersonal and structural causes. Chapters explore how GBV frameworks and migration management intersect, bringing to the forefront the specific inequalities these intersections produce for migrant women. Drawing upon several disciplines, the authors engage in co-writing a critical engagement which proposes an original understanding of how the concepts of intersectionality, vulnerability and precarity speak to each other from a feminist perspective.
