Call For Papers

Ìrìnkèrindò: A Journal of African Migration is seeking submissions for its upcoming issue on Women, Water and Migration.

Women and girls are disproportionately and uniquely impacted by Africa’s shifting physical and social environment. Across the continent freshwater resources are depleting at an alarming rate. From the ongoing ecological crisis in Lake Chad to the decline in biodiversity along the Nile River, these environmental changes are placing a great strain on the health, security and economic wellbeing of the populations that are sustained by them. The chronic water shortages and concomitant environmental shifts have contributed to the ongoing phenomenon of environmental migration, which has its own socio-ecological consequences for Africa’s women.

The upcoming Women, Water and Migration issue of Ìrìnkèrindò: A Journal of African Migration will explore a gender-based analysis of the impact of water shortages and environmentally induced migration throughout the continent by exploring the complex relationship between water resources, population movement, and women.

We seek submissions of articles, book and film reviews, and creative pieces that critically explore these and other questions:
• What impact do these environmental shifts have on population movement?
• How does the migration-climate nexus affect women and gender relations?
• How has the declining water supply affected the movement of African women locally, nationally and globally? What impact does this have on the environment?
• What community resources exist to allow people to cope with the changing environment?
• In what ways have women responded to climate change and how might a women's rights agenda address global warming and water scarcity?

Articles must be original and should not be under consideration by another publication at the time of submission. All submissions should be emailed to by Friday, March 22, 2013. Articles should be between 20-25 pages long. They should be accessible and jargon-free. All submissions will be independently refereed. Accepted articles must conform to Ìrìnkèrindò: A Journal of African Migration style requirements. Please see submission guidelines:
