Globalization : theory and practice by Eleonore Kofman( Book )

35 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Globalization and the issues of power and identity arising from this phenomenon have become central concerns of international studies, whether viewed from political economy, spatial or cultural perspectives." "For the first time, a multi-disciplinary group of international scholars interrogates key assumptions about globalization in theory and practice. Using a range of expert knowledge, their arguments prove that this phenomenon can be understood only through detailed assessment of the processes and discourses associated with it. Gender, identity, citizenship and migration are major themes. Contributors also investigate, from contrasting perspectives, the changing nature of the state and implications for theorizing about it." "This collection provides a powerful new context for debates about globalization, through its identification of both continuities and new concerns, and demonstrates the cross-disciplinary imperatives for investigating these areas. The authors are from the fields of international relations, international political economy, and political and cultural geography. The book will be of interest to the growing multi-disciplinary audience interested in globalization, including those in cultural, media and communications studies, gender studies, sociology and social theory, development studies, and business studies."--Jacket

Gendered migrations and global social reproduction by Eleonore Kofman( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eleonore Kofman and Parvati Raghuram argue that social reproduction offers an insightful lens through which to understand gendered transformations in global patterns of contemporary migration. They suggest that focusing on a range of sites, sectors, and skills beyond those deployed in the literature on care can offer new insights into the relationship between production and reproduction across genders, and how these are being reconfigured in the Global North and South. Drawing on the revived interest in social reproduction in the last few years, Gendered Migrations and Global Social Reproduction suggests that the failure of social reproduction is not only an outcome but also a driver of global migration among different categories of migrants. Moreover, the gendered implications of skill selectivity in immigration regimes, along with class, race and nationality, produce new forms of inequality which influence the ability of individuals and households to benefit from migration and to improve the conditions of social reproduction"--

Gender, generations and the family in international migration by Albert Kraler( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Family-related migration is moving to the centre of political debates on migration, integration and multiculturalism in Europe. It is also more and more leading to lively academic interest in the family dimensions of international migration.

Fifteen chapters come up with a number of common themes. Collectively, the authors address the need to better understand the diversity of family-related migratio
