Gender and skiller migration in Europe

Kofman, Eleonore ORCID logoORCID: (2012) Gender and skiller migration in Europe. Cuadernos de Relaciones Laborales, 30 (1) . pp. 63-89. ISSN 1131-8635 [Article]


This article examines the significance of skilled labour migration and the sectors in which skilled female migrants are employed. It considers some of the major reasons for the lack of attention given to gendered aspects of skilled migration. Nonetheless there have been some interesting theoretical and empirical advances in our understanding of skilled female migrants, which go beyond a general appreciation of the hardships they confront in the course of migration. These studies explore in more detail both the obstacles and their responses and strategies to entry into the labour market and deskilling and in specific sectors and states as well as in the European Union. The article also argues that how immigration regulations shape gendered skilled migrations is a topic which deserves more attention.
