This book comprises of 11 essays that bridge the gap between gender and conflict, and gender and migration through examining the status, identities and power relations among women and men. Essays explore the difference between choice and coercion in conflict-related migration and how the line is crossed; the division between private sphere of women versus the public sphere of men and how it blurs after migration; the need of women participating in politics to find a solution to crises; the relationship between the state, citizenship and national honour versus women during and after conflict, and the need for gender asylum laws for refugee laws.
