Abstract

With many Ethiopian women seeking labour opportunities in the Gulf States, international and humanitarian organisations often explain their motivations in terms of economic security and protection. New ethnographic research, however, shows that the reasons driving women’s irregular migration are more complex. Effective policy responses should instead acknowledge domestic, political and structural violence in home countries.
