"Being Left behind" Gendered forced return migration, women's agency and the NGO battle, the Moroccan case

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

In this article I focus on a still unknown form of gendered forced return migration: migrant women and youngsters are left behind in their country of origin by their husbands and fathers, particularly during the summer holliday. I will argue that the transnational context of marriage migration creates a deteriorated power balance in favour of men to the detriment of women.
