Reluctant Returnees:: Gender Perspectives on (Re) settlement Among Highly Skilled Indian Return Migrants in Bangalore
2016 (English)In: Asia in Focus: A Nordic journal on Asia by early career researchers, ISSN 2446-0001, no Special Issue, 23-31 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Taking its point of departure in the personal story of Nalini, this article examines highly skilled Indian women’s experiences of moving back to India after years of working and living with their families abroad. The article touches on themes of gender relations, family commitments, career opportunities, and social and cultural conservatism within the context of recent waves of return migration to Bangalore, a prominent hub in the imaginary of a “new” globalising India. Tracing Nalini’s story in and out of states of depression, the article points to ways in which returnee women find their own, at times, unexpected ways of dealing with the upheavals of return migration.
