citat Does transnational migration better Bolivian women's status in family and society? Or does it (re)produce gendered sociocultural power relations? citat

I hold a BA in social anthropology and an M.Phil. in Anthropology of Development, both from the University of Bergen, Norway. My M.Phil. project focused on migration from Senegal to Spain, and explored how the ‘Senegalese migration project’ is constructed in the meeting between sociocultural practices and global structures.

In March 2013 I started as a Willy Brandt PhD candidate at MIM (Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare), and the working title of my PhD project is Mobile ‘Development’? The Empowerment of Bolivian Women through Transnational Migration. It will explore how the Bolivian experience of migration to Spain reflects the connections between our globalized world with its hegemonic discourse of ‘development’ and changes in intra- and extrafamilial power relations in Bolivian transnational families.

I will focus especially on the experiences of migrant women and I ask how the migration project, as a strategy for accumulation of economic capital, might also supply the Bolivian (woman) migrant worker with other forms of capital (social, cultural, symbolic) and in effect alter gendered power relations on family and/or community level. I will also consider the catalytic impact the current economic crisis might have in producing these alterations. I conduct ethnographic fieldwork in both Spain and Bolivia, whilst relying on surveys in order to obtain more quantitative data.
