NATO's expansion to the east is the West's biggest political mistake since the end of the Cold War. This is not only the official position of the Russian government but an opinion shared by scores of independent Russian, European, and US experts. The cost of this mistake is high, and it should be borne by those responsible for it: the United States and its allies. For the near future, Russia will remain aloof and will not undertake any significant political, economic, or military steps in response to the new situation. Nevertheless, the expansion of the Western alliance is and will continue to be one of the major problems for Russian foreign and national security policy. Obviously, the Russian factor has not been seriously taken into consideration by the NATO allies during the decision-making process, but it plays an important role and should be expected to have a deep impact on the alliance's enlargement and its future consequences.

The purpose of this research is to provide a critical review of the literature of gender in international migration studies. After presenting and analyzing the role of gender in general concepts/drivers of global migration, I focus on how gender shapes the major causes of global migration and the connections of gender with international migration, from migration decision-making to integration/assimilation processes. This work also addresses the process of integrating highly-educated women migrants/refugees into the economy. I analyze the main approaches, concepts, theories, methodologies, and substantive issues. Finally, I summarize the major points made herein and provide evidence of my perspective and projections regarding the directions in which research in this area might proceed.
