Gender, Migration and the Global Race for Talent

Gender, Migration and the Global Race for Talent

Abdeslam Marfouk of the University of Liege and IWEPS reviews Gender, Migration and the Global Race for Talent, by Anna Boucher. Dr. Boucher describes a global race for skilled immigrants that seeks to attract the best global workers. In the pursuit of these individuals, governments may incidentally discriminate on gender grounds. She outlines that existing gendered differences in the global labor market related to life course trajectories, pay gaps and gendered divisions in occupational specialization are also present in skilled immigration selection policies.
