The specific aim of this conference is to combine the disciplines, approaches and perspectives  that study the various societies affected by international migrations, focusing on the question of gender. Our work will be based on the analyses of global production and reproduction chains  (and the so-called "global care chains" in particular) and the new models put forward for the study of emerging trends played out by women in contemporary mobility flows.

This event is intended to generate major academic and social interest, both on a local and international level, covering the fields of migration and gender and development studies in the age of globalisation. The aim of this joint collaboration is to move forward in the design of social intervention policies and integrated sustainable development and participated development from a gender-based approach.

Finally, a further aim is that the conference should take advantage of and benefit from Menorcas experience and in turn, contribute to the debate into gender, migration and development on the island, highlighting an international analysis and approach.
