Summary/Abstract: Access to and management of mobility are gendered and dependent on institutional context. Mobility as a strategy can be empowering, a resource, a tool for social innovation and agency and important dimension of social capital - if under migrants' own control. But mobility may reflect increased dependencies, proliferation of precarious jobs and, as in the case of trafficking in women, lack of mobility and freedom.
