Summary/Abstract: Oksana Koshulko in "Women from North Move to South: Contemporary Migration from the Former Soviet Union countries to Turkey" tells us about migration of women from the Former Soviet Union countries to Turkey. The book draws on a pioneering research in this area discussing the results from a field research carried out in Turkey. Koshulko interviewed women from the Former Soviet Union countries to understand their motives, difficulties and struggles they go through in their lives in Turkey. She explores their common problems in Turkey, their education, opportunities and restrictions. The discussions are contextualised with reference to broader economic and political circumstances in sending countries contrasted with the Turkish case.
