Abstract

This research paper examines Nicaraguan migrant women’s engagement with
transnational social protection (TSP) in Spain and Nicaragua. Although in
recent years TSP has emerged as a relevant research agenda in migration
studies, not much is known about the ways in which migrants, particularly
women, navigate welfare systems and mobilize resources to access and provide
social protection across borders. By approaching this study from a gender lens,
and by privileging the voices of migrants, this work represents an innovative
and original contribution to the growing scholarship on TSP.
