UNU-GCM hosted an international conference on ‘Female Agency, Mobility and Socio-cultural Change’, which took place on June 11th -12th in Barcelona. The conference examined topics such as female agency, diasporas and transnationalism, labour, processes of identity construction, the sociocultural reconstruction of home, work and urban spaces and policy responses to female mobilites. It put academic research into dialogue with debates in the United Nations that address gender discrimination and female migration. The stimulating discussions among conference participants, who came from a number of institutions around the world, brought together a diversity of perspectives and experiences. The conference also included side-events that engaged with artistic and visual representations of the key themes. UNU-GCM expresses sincere thanks to all participants who made the conference a great success.
