Migration and violence from a gender perspective

Publication date:
Berta Güell and Sònia Parella (coords.)

In a context of rising global inequality, migrants are often subjected to violence, whether physical, symbolic, institutional or structural. It may take place at any point of the migration cycle – origin, transit or destination. Practices like female genital mutilation, forced marriage, honour killings, rape, coercive prostitution, domestic violence and femicide are specific forms of gender violence that disproportionately affect women and the LGTBI+ community. Given this reality, issue 133 of Revista CIDOB d’Afers Internacionals  applies a gender and intersectional perspective to analyse these forms of violence in a range of countries and territories, with the triple aim of contributing to the production of scientific knowledge, stimulating the creation of informed public policies and encouraging critical thinking in order to work towards a society that is free from violence.
