“Altogether, this volume has a great deal to offer any reader concerned with the global scenario of armed conflict, environmental stress, large-scale displacement, and the desperate search for security.” • Signs


At the turn of the new millenium, war, political oppression, desperate poverty, environmental degradation and disasters, and economic underdevelopment are sharply increasing the ranks of the world's twenty million forced migrants. In this volume, eighteen scholars provide a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary look beyond the statistics at the experiences of the women, men, girls, and boys who comprise this global flow, and at the highly gendered forces that frame and affect them. In theorizing gender and forced migration, these authors present a set of descriptively rich, gendered case studies drawn from around the world on topics ranging from international human rights, to the culture of aid, to the complex ways in which women and men envision displacement and resettlement.

Doreen Indra is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta. Her most recent work has been on environmentally forced migrants in Bangladesh and the social construction and culture of disasters. She is the co-author of Continuous Journey: Social History of South Asians in Canada, co-editor and author of two volumes on refugees in Canada and is author of many academic journal articles in the field of forced migration.
