Call for Papers - Gender and marriage migration in Asia and Europe: why do integration measures target women?

19 April 2023

You are warmly invited to submit an abstract to the seminar Gender and marriage migration in Asia and Europe: why do integration measures target women? which will be taking place at the Radboud University, Nijmegen (the Netherlands) on 28 and 29 September 2023. The seminar is co-organised by the Centre for Migration Law of the Radboud University in collaboration with the Radboud University Network on Migrant Inclusion (RUNOMI), the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, and GenSeM at IMISCOE.

In much of the academic literature, integration measures are framed as a more or less recent phenomenon that can be found in western liberal democracies. (Western) comparative studies regarding integration requirements focus on laws and policies applied in Europe (see, for instance, Goodman 2010, Scholten et al. 2012, Strik et al 2010, Strik et al. 2013, Van Oers 2014). However, such integration measures are also common in other parts of the world, most notably in Asia (see Chiu & Yeoh 2021 for an overview). Within and from this region, marriage migration has been on the rise for the last five decades, eliciting regulatory attention in both sending and receiving countries (Fresnoza-Flot & Ricordeau 2017; Ishii 2016; Kim et al. 2021; Mu & Yeung 2022). This interdisciplinary seminar aims to provide key insights into states’ regulatory mechanisms surrounding marriage migration and their gendered dimensions in Asia and Europe in comparative perspective.

We intend to stimulate an interdisciplinary, thematic approach in researching the role of gender in integration policies and practices in comparative perspective. The call is therefore aimed at researchers from Asia and Europe and from various academic backgrounds.

A selection of the presented papers will be part of a Special Issue for a peer reviewed international journal.

Deadline for abstracts is 26th May, 2023.
