The conference sought to develop connections between different aspects of the study of migrant care labour in transnational contexts: between state policies in care, migration and labour markets and the gendered and racialised divisions that shape these; in the relationship between both sending and receiving countries; and in the different scope and contexts of care work from so-called informal or unskilled home-based labour to the professional migration of, for example, nurses.
