The conference wants to address the gender and family perspective in migration decisions and their consequences for origin and destination countries.


Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Economics of family migration
  • Gender differences in the determinants of migration
  • Gender-specific selection patterns
  • Consequences of migration for origin or destination countries
  • Migration and fertility

Our focus is to bring together researchers who focus on different theoretical and empirical aspects of gender-specific and family-specific migration issues. We welcome both theoretical as well as empirical papers by economists and other social scientists.
