Research on the subject of women's migration and conflict is generally organised along the twin axes of gender and conflict, and gender and migration. The reality of women's conflict-driven migration, however, falls between these two axes. The essays in this volume seek to fill this gap by examining the changes in status, identities and power relations among women and men as they move from a conflict situation at home, to migrant camps, to the post-conflict or peace-building phase when they return home. The contributors use a variety of research methods including ethnography, dialogue, oral history, textual analyses and consciousness-raising techniques.
