Resumen

MORA, Claudia. Globalization, gender and migraton. Polis [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.20, pp.285-297. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682008000100015.

This paper explores the transformations in contemporary migratory patterns and on their composition, as they are linked to changes in the global economy. It suggests that the high number of women migrants is related to new niches of precarious work, especially in the service sector, and that the decision over the settlement society is related to migrants' gender, which contributes to explain the feminization of south-to-south migration. It argues that the conditions of economic vulnerability of labor migrants, their gender, and their national origin, all determine processes of social exclusion in the host society, which affect their access to social benefits, social integration, and life trajectories.

Palabras clave : globalization; gender; migration; social exclusion.
