OUR FOCUS

Through a multidisciplinary, comparative analysis across the two countries, and of the experiences of migrants, two significant but separate fields of academic research will be brought together:

gender issues in IT

gender and skilled migration

This project brings together academic and industry interests and approaches to explore the four questions.

What are the patterns of gender differences in the labour market among migrant and non-migrant workers in the IT sector in India and the UK?

What processes have led to gendered patterns of workplace experiences among migrant and non-migrant workers in the IT sector in India and the UK?

What is the role of firms, industry and national regulations and cultures in creating barriers and opportunities for migrant and non-migrant men and women's career entry and progression and labour markets?

What are the best practices for integrating women into firms in each country and how does this differ by migration status?

Outputs
