Migrating Women: Mothers, Carers, Workers and Citizens Conference Report

The aims of the event were to:

(a) bring together researchers across the university with interests in female migration or the effects of migration on women and their families;

(b) alert participants about opportunities for collaborative research across disciplines and various categories (academic staff, postdoctoral and graduate members in the university and locality); and,

(c)  encourage interest in the new Japanese initiative on Migrating Women: mothers, carers, workers and citizens, which is funded by the Anglo-Daiwa Foundation. The aim here is to establish a collaborative research partnership between Cambridge University and Kobe University that focuses on the implications for social and economic policy and provision of the presence of migrant female workers, transformations in marriage patterns and the presence of migrant children.
