This chapter explores the gendered dimensions of immigration policies in the context of rising levels and more diversified forms of immigration and net migration, as well as a more complex policy regime. It first outlines the gendered dimension of different migratory flows, starting with different sectors of migrant labour. One of the recent areas of expansion has been that of social care in diverse sites, skills, and sectors. The chapter then examines specific issues arising from family and asylum flows. The different channels of entry and social divisions give rise to differentiated and stratified economic and welfare rights that have increasingly been codified in immigration regulations. The second section of the chapter examines the gendered aspects of immigration policies, especially in relation to some of the changes currently being implemented within a framework of managed migration.
