26.05.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This article sheds light on the gendered dynamics of mobility and explores the relationship between the feminization of migration and the development of migrant women’s societies of origin. It discusses the consequences and challenges, which female migrants are facing within the frameworks of the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP).The article analyses four specific groups of female migrants from ENP countries to the EU, and compares personal reasons for migrating (family, labour, study, etc.), mobility patterns (permanent vs. temporary), and the cultural and socio-economic forces that shape their experiences.
