This review considers how international migration is related to development, and focuses on how knowledge about the so-called 'migration-development nexus' has been expanded through analyses of gender. My specific objective is to understand the ways in which the migration-development nexus is understood to be 'gendered' through the intersecting activities of multiple agents as they negotiate and transform transnational and postcolonial contexts of mobility and development. The contemporary migration-development nexus appears distinctive, and is growing and commanding a portfolio of resources sufficient to hardwire relations between societies, economies, and generations for a long time.
