Drawing on the experience of migrant women domestic workers, theological ethics, and liberationist theologies, this book offers an intercultural theology of migration that arises from the (dis)continuities, (im)mobilities, and (dis)empowerment embedded in the encounter between gender, class, race, culture and religion in the context of migration.

The wealth of insights and themes evoked by this book could spark a very rich theological debate. [...] A welcome and much needed contribution to a Catholic theology that should move Christian believers to become more and more aware of being "pilgrims in the wilderness".
Gioacchino Campese, CS, in Bibliographia Missionaria
Migration has long been associated with the social sciences. However, as a phenomenon that provides windows into possibly new forms of oppression and, at the same time, paths toward human liberation a systematic theological look at contemporary migration is long overdue. Building on the emerging interest on migration in theology this book presents an intercultural theology of migration drawn from the experience of Filipino women domestic workers in Hong Kong in dialogue with theological ethics and liberationist theologies. The result is a new look at the phenomenon of contemporary migration.
