Zahra Babar’s Article Published in Migration and Development Journal


Zahra Babar’s research article titled, “Gender and Mobility: Qatar’s Highly Skilled Female Migrants in Context,” co-authored with Michael Ewers, Nabil Khattab, and Miriam Shaath, was published in the latest issue of Migration and Development Journal. The paper addresses the knowledge gap on highly skilled female migrants’ experiences by examining the experiences of highly skilled migrant women working in the Persian Gulf monarchy of Qatar.
