This presentation will draw on Justina's recently published book (Gender, Livelihoods and Migration in Africa, Xlibris Corporation, 2012) in which she presents an in-depth discussion which interrogates not only issues concerning the migration discourse, but of gender theory and practice. It explores the gendered patterns of migration including how gender impacts on decisions to migrate in terms of who goes and why. Furthermore it examines how this affects the benefits and risks of migration for women and men, including impact on gender relations. The book's empirical analysis is expertly crafted and executed, and the author shows an impressive state-of-the-art qualitative research analysis. This book provides an invaluable, up-to-date and refreshing discussion of key development issues in sub-Saharan Africa. The book will be of particular interest to those working in disciplines, and interdisciplinary fields such as development studies, agricultural studies, rural development, migration studies, gender studies, African studies, anthropology, political science, political economy, social work, economics, geography, and sociology.
