Handbook on Critical Geographies of Migration

Edited by Katharyne Mitchell, Reece Jones and Jennifer L. Fluri

Border walls, shipwrecks in the Mediterranean, separated families at the border, island detention camps: migration is at the centre of contemporary political and academic debates. This ground-breaking Handbook offers an exciting and original analysis of critical research on themes such as these, drawing on cutting-edge theories from an interdisciplinary and international group of leading scholars. With a focus on spatial analysis and geographical context, this volume highlights a range of theoretical, methodological and regional approaches to migration research, while remaining attuned to the underlying politics that bring critical scholars together.

Chapter 10: Gendered circular migrations of Afghans: fleeing conflict and seeking opportunity

Nazgol Bagheri and Jennifer L. Fluri


This chapter examines multiple and cyclical migration patterns by Afghans, focusing on gendered and corporeal experiences of displacement from the 1980s to the present. The authors first provide an historical overview of the different successive waves of political conflict and subsequent migration, followed by a focus on gendered refugee migration patterns in Iran and Pakistan. They discuss the circular migrations of Afghans as part of economic trade, and to and from the United States (US) since the US-led invasion and occupation of the country on October 7, 2001. The authors address critical geographies of migration by explicating the multiple embodied and gendered attributes of migration to and from conflict zones.
