GENDER AND INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION

Pavol KOPINEC, Monika MAČKINOVÁ

Abstract


Many people around the world are seeking new opportunities and better life. Gender affects and is influencing the reasons for migrating, it also refers to the behaviors, and expectations which are associated with being female or male. It is therefore necessary to understand, analyze and respond to current gender dynamics. One of the fastest growing group is women and girls migrating for employment. Migration can allow them to advance socially and professionally. Unfortunately, there is also another and less pleasant part, which could lead to abuse and exploitation. Thanks to the greater awareness that migration flows include women and girls the gender perspective in international migration is becoming more important. This paper therefore focus on short description of law, selected gender aspects, awareness on discrimination, gender based violence, protection and principles of human dignity and equality.

Key words: International migration. Cultural diversity. Gender. Discrimination. Protection. Equality.
