Women Migration and Women's Land Tenure Security in the greater Mekong sub-region

This report considers the interlinkages between migration, gender, and land tenure. The study on which the report is based explored how migration affects women’s land tenure security, and in turn the ways in which women’s control over land shapes patterns of migration through case studies in three countries such as in Long Lan village, Luanprabang province (Lao PDR), Nwar La Woe village, Karenni state (Myanmar), and Na Dokmai village, Udon Thani province, (Thailand).
