This panel discussion brings together different perspectives on the interplay between gender, migration, HRM and precariousness.

In doing so it explores different facets of this complex phenomena by drawing on insights in research from different regions in the Global South.

Understandings about precariousness continue to sit at the center of discussions about HRM and employment relations. In the context of existing and reconfigured inequalities, problematising the gender dimension of these discussions is fundamental to gain a nuanced understanding of lived experiences, capturing not only the struggles and hurdles but also broadening the analytical scope to consider forms of agency, empowerment and hope.
