CNR-JSPS Bilateral Program 2018-2019: “Damage assessment and conservation of underground space as valuable resources for human activities use in Italy and Japan”
Presentation at the first visit of the Italian team in Japan (June 2018)
Bruno Venditto (CNR-ISSM): "Internal migration and gender empowerment: Empirical finding from Namibia".
ABSTRACT: The presentation show how social mobility, and gender empowerment, emerged as the most relevant amongst the effects of migration on the family structures, and inside the home community; an indication of both the relevance that social rather than economic reasons alone, have in explaining the drivers to migrate, and of the capacity of migration to transform the external social structures.
The agency migrant is at the same time dependent from the social norms, but looks for and creates a separateness environment, balancing the responsibilities towards the family and the own personal plans. The social norms are embedded in the migrant self, but when coming to the decision to move, the agency acts to achieve the own personal objectives, which are not limited to the financial satisfaction, in this way migration decision is also separated from the structural economic constrains.
