Welcome to the INSTRAW LIBRARY, a compilation of around 600 publications produced by the former UN International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (UN-INSTRAW), which served as the leading UN institute devoted to research, training and knowledge management to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment. INSTRAW, along with DAW, OSAGI and UNIFEM, came together in 2010 to establish the present UN Women.

The Legacy of INSTRAW

In addition to the INSTRAW Library, the UN Women Training Centre presents the publication “The legacy of INSTRAW in promoting the rights of women. A historical record of the Institute between 1976 and 2010”, which intends to pay tribute to the story of INSTRAW as well as to the women’s movements and governments which supported it.

This paper examines the interrelationship between migration, gender, remittances and development and also serves as an entry point for future research and project proposals. This framework aims to establish the basis for formulating a more adequate response to questions such as: how does the growing feminization of migration affect remittances flows? How can remittances contribute to the achievement of gender equality? The paper reviews the main elements that are in play and that cannot be overlooked in a gender analysis of the sending, use and impact of remittances.
