Public lecture: Some Gendered Aspects of Migration: Resilience of Indian Nurses Abroad
Start Date: 4/11/2019Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 4/11/2019End Time: 1:45 PM

Event Description:

Thousands of nurses from India go to work abroad, leaving at an early age. Most of them will then enter in a process of step by step migration, having to adjust to different contexts and countries. These young women have been raised in a very protected way in families where autonomy of women is far from being a norm.

This presentation intends to highlight and analyze the ways these women manage to cope as much as possible with all the challenges they have to face in order to live far from home and in a lot more independent manner. The concept of resilience will then be questioned to verify if and how it may be fruitfully applied in the context of nurses’ migration.


Marie Percot is an anthropologist who has focused her research on South Asia, in particular she has worked on the migration of Indian nurses to the Gulf countries.
