  • 2015•03•26     Barcelona, Spain

    The UNU Institute on Globalization, Culture and Mobility (UNU-GCM) is launching a call for papers for our upcoming conference on Female Agency, Mobility and Socio-cultural Change, to be held 11-12 June 2015 in Barcelona.

    This conference will examine topics such as female agency, diasporas and transnationalism, labour and decent work, processes of identity construction, the sociocultural reconstruction of home, work and urban spaces and policy responses to female mobilites. It will put academic research into dialogue with debates in the United Nations that address gender discrimination and the role of female migrants in development agendas.

    We are inviting general proposals, as well as proposals for two thematic panels on “Women Diasporas and Transnationalism” and “(Dis) Empowering Labour: Gender, Migration and Decent Work”.

    The deadline for submission of abstracts is 20 April 2015. Please see the following calls for papers for more details.
