migrant women. Given their highly securitised nature, access to detention centres in the UK is difficult to obtain for researchers doing empirical work in this field. This is even more limited by focusing on the few sites where women are detained ( Bhatia and Canning, 2020 ). This article offers an alternative to this empirical constraint, analysing a rich sample of secondary sources that have focused on the site since it opened in 2001, including (ex)detainee testimonies, Home Office policy guidance and documents, reports and campaign materials from NGOs, news articles

complex between the two large cities. Through previous work with unaccompanied migrant women and children in Johannesburg, the authors identified Thembisa as a site where many young women who crossed the border from Mozambique informally, settle ( Walker and Clacherty, 2015 ; Clacherty, 2019 ). Drawn by a sense of familiarity gathered from family members or friends who had migrated before them, young women make their way from the border areas to this township. They now live mostly with peers or boyfriends/partners in rented, informally built rooms in backyards. The

297 SIXTEEN Intersectional experiences of young migrant women in Istanbul Bayram Ünal As of the early 1990s, we have witnessed increasing immigration to Turkey in line with the integration of Istanbul in the globalized economy as an important node in a world-city system (Sonmez, 1995; Keyder, 1999; Gedik, 2000; Hacisalihoglu, 2000; Radikal, 2001; Sibel, 2001; Turkiye Gazetesi, 2002). As an integral part of the global capitalist system since early 1990s, Istanbul has seen an increasing informal economy due to its geographical position and generally

69 FIVE Digital embodiments: a two-day workshop with migrant women Digital Storytelling (DS) holds particularly compelling methodological and epistemological characteristics for a feminist approach to research which is embodied, creative and participatory. This chapter draws on the research material and analytical insights recently published in the journal Methodological Innovations (Vacchelli and Peyrefitte, 2018b). In this chapter I aim to demonstrate that DS can be understood as part of a feminist approach allowing women to tell their stories in their

7 THE SOCIAL SITUATION AND EMPLOYMENT OF MIGRANT WOMEN IN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY Isabelle Prondzynski Migrantwomen inthe European Community (EC) tend to suffer from a cumulation of disadvantages. The highly developed EC legislation on the free movement of workers does not cover migrants originating in Third Countries (i.e. non Member States). and the relevant national legislation does not regard dependants as migrant workers in theirown right. Migrantwomenfromwithin and outside the EC experience numerous practical difficulties in obtaining access to training

them in the long term ( Fook, 2003 ; Payne, 2021 ). Moreover, the role of social work is to develop and practise sensitivity to the stories, circumstances and situations of individuals and social groups who are socially and politically invisible, marginalised or overlooked ( Payne, 2021 ). Among those groups, migrant women are especially vulnerable to social, economic, and political disadvantage, as they are doubly deprived as both migrants and women ( Fook, 2003 ; Raghuram and Kofman, 2015 ). This is also reflected in research: even though female migration is de
