Gender as Boundary Marker in Migration and Mobility: Case Studies from Switzerland

In this project we examine how gender affects politics, institutional practices, discourses and experiences of migrant inclusion and exclusion. We aim at identifying the mechanisms through which gender shapes durable constructions of migrant ‘others’ and promotes particular realities of exclusion. This multi-level case study of Switzerland presents new analytical perspectives and empirical results. It contributes to a burgeoning international scholarship that situates gender at the heart of studies on migration and mobility, citizenship, nation state building and human agency.
