Migration, Ethnicity/Race, Gender, and Labor Market Inequality in Sub-Saharan Africa & the Asia-Pacific Region Conference
Contemporary research on labor market inequality has stressed the importance of identity categories such as ethnicity/race, citizenship, and gender/sexuality in determining employment outcomes for foreign-born individuals across several societies. However, a majority of this research has been done in North America and Western Europe. This is especially troubling given the increased mobility of individuals in the so-called “Global South” and the increasing appeal of non-traditional migration destinations outside the West. Two regions, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Asia-Pacific, are particularly representative of this shift; with Sub-Saharan African countries generating more voluntary movement of migrants in search of socioeconomic mobility and many Asian-Pacific countries gradually (or in some cases, abruptly) increasing their share of global migrants. The papers from this conference will focus on issues of inequality in labor markets as they affect different categories of migrants in both the Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia-Pacific regions. The overall aim is to make comparisons and note differences both within and across these regions so as to understand the mechanisms both generating and maintaining labor market inequality for migrants and societies beyond North America and Western Europe.
