Bridget Anderson publications on care work and borders

4 July 2012

The recently published book "Citizenship, Migrant Activism and the Politics of Movement" and the new edition of the journal "Cuadernos de Relaciones Laborales" both include contributions by Dr Bridget Anderson

Bridget Anderson, Nandita Sharma (University of Hawaii at Manoa), and Cynthia Wright (York University, Canada) have contributed the chapter 'We are all foreigners: No Borders as a practical political project' to the book Citizenship, Migrant Activism and the Politics of Movement, edited by Peter Nyers (McMaser University) and Kim Rygiel (Wilfrid Laurier University).

The book investigates the possibilities and impossibilities of migrant activism in the context of securitised sovereignties and regimes that restrict mobility. 

The journal Cuadernos de Relaciones Laborales: Immigraci√≥n, g√©nero y mercado de trabajo (Vol. 30(1) June 2012) includes Bridget Anderson's article 'Who Needs Them? Care Work, Migration and Public Policy'.

The paper examines how immigration policies on migrant care workers are both pragmatic 'policy solutions' and also reflect and construct social ideas and relations about gender, layout and nation, with a particular focus on the UK. 

The article is available in the journal (Journal of Industrial Relations: Immigration, gender and labor market) in English.
