ABSTRACT El artículo revisa los principales enfoques teóricos en el estudio del desarrollo desde una perspectiva de género, con el fin de analizar cómo ha ido evolucionando el tratamiento que desde ellos se ha dado a las relaciones de género y cuáles son los instrumentos conceptuales que deben utilizarse para abordar en su globalidad el papel que desempeña la mujer.

    ABSTRACT: This article explores the role of women migrants in the increasingly complex migration arena that is Western Europe. Women can no longer simply be considered within the framework of family reunification. Women's proportion in the migration flow is increasing overall and within some ethnic groups women are now more numerous than men. And compared with indigenous women in the receiving countries, immigrant/minority women display a high level of labour market participation.The changed political map of Europe as a whole, and political and economic pressures in the sending countries, combine to augment migration pressure while ‘Fortress Europe’ continues to erect external barriers. The result is increasing flows of undocumented migrants, for whom precarious and low‐paid work outside the formal economy is often the only option. Women in this situation are particularity vulnerable, not least to exploitation in the sex ‘trade’.The article argues that it is time for Western Europe to acknowledge its responsibility, both to the settled minority groups, and to migrants and refugees who flee intolerable conditions.

    ABSTRACT: "This paper provides a critical review of existing studies about how migration alters women's position in the course of social change....First, the conceptual and methodological issues that bear on the assessment of changing gender relations are distilled from the existing literature. Second, for heuristic purposes we delineate three alternative outcomes for migrant women using the distribution-redistribution analytical framework....Finally, we provide a selective review of case studies illustrating alternative outcomes for migrant women in Africa and Latin America."
