Migration is a phenomenon we encountered throughout the history of various types. But historically, we have been confronted with the feminization of migration in recent years. Women’s experiences in the migration process along with the reasons for migration and the experiences after migration are among the remarkable issues. In this special issue, it is aimed to make visible migrant women’s experiences due to war and all kind of violence. The concept of migrant women also emphasizes refugee and asylum-seeker women. Thus, the conditions that cause women to migrate to different countries will be seen and this process will be evaluated in terms of human rights. But while seeing the processes that cause women to migrate, their experiences during and after migration are also very important. Do the reasons for women’s migration continue in the migration process? What are the changes in women’s lives after migration? What impact do the social structure of women’s origin country and the social structure of the host country have on their lives? It is important to observe this process, especially in the context of international migrations and to seek what kind of changes occur with the migration in the host country. Host countries’ studies, focus of human rights, with migrant women is considerable. And also it should be seen women’s experiences as a refugee and asylum-seeker under temporary protection. During this process it is important to see state’s policies implemented for integration. In brief, the experiences of women who have to migrate will enable us to see the pre-and post-migration process. Therefore it is noteworthy to look at state’s policies and practices that will affect their experience.
