  • The study is an important contribution to the scarce critical gender and disaster literature, and unique in the way that it interlinks gender, disasters and immobility in coastal Bangladesh.
  • Methodologically the study illustrates an innovative way of applying Q-based Critical Discourse Analysis within climate-induced (im)mobility resulting in rich empirical insights that revealed complex psychosocial layers.
  • Finally, it offers a much needed contribution to the Trapped Populations literature; one that is urgently lacking both empirical insights and publications that conceptualise gender as a potential socially immobilising factor.
