Despite the great number of female migrants and their importance for the development agenda in countries of origin, there has until recently been a striking lack of gender analysis in the economic literature on international migration and development. This volume makes a valuable contribution in this context by providing eight new studies focusing on the nexus between gender, international migration, and economic development.

Explores the complex nexus of security issues that the governments of Latin America &the indigenous communities of the region face at the end of the 20th century. A better understanding of security issues from the perspective of indigenous communities should enable U.S. policymakers to estimate more accurately how U.S. policy plays a role in the aggravation or resolution of interethnic conflict in Latin America. Contents: understanding ethnic policies: the role of external variables in Brazil and Colombia; a marriage of convenience: the Mexican indigenous movement and the Zapatista rebellion.
