The main goal of this paper is to deepen the understanding of female labour migration in the Czech Republic through proposing a blueprint of a research design that can be implemented in a form of a research project. A special stress in the research design is made on the research of the female labour and on examining how far the notion of risk may be useful as an analytical tool in explaining the process of female labour migration using the example of the work sectors typically allocated for female workers (e.g. cleaning, nursing, retail sellers, etc.). Furthermore, blueprint offers a novel approach to the topic of female migration by enriching the new methodological toolbox by applying the methodology of Mexican Migration Project (MMP) carried our since 1982 by Professor Douglas Massey from Princeton University and Professor Jorge Durand from the University of Guadalajara. This approach would yield a unique source of data that would enable tracking patterns and processes of contemporary female labour immigration to the Czech Republic.
