This book intervenes in the growing discussion about migration and global environmental change by situating this discussion within a wider of set of debates about labour, gender and the political economy of remittances. It is underpinned by the idea that researchers cannot properly evaluate the interrelationships between migration and environmental change without accounting for the multiple ways in which migration shapes and is shaped by gender, labour and remittance economies. The first part of the book develops a set of theories and concepts useful for making sense of these themes. These include a theory of gendered power specific to the Anthropocene, the relationship between neoliberal political economy and gender, and transnationalism. The second section offers a set of gendered analyses of migration and environmental change. And third part of the book offers a set of regional perspectives. The book includes chapter contributions from both established and early career researchers and targets a wide audience of scholars, researchers and practitioners with an interest in migration and environmental change.
