Care

The social relations of care are subject to increasing pressures, indeed some have claimed that there is a ‘care crisis’ in some parts of the world. Migration can be regarded as both a source of and solution to pressures such as the global increase in women’s waged labour, the continuing gendered imbalance of domestic/care responsibilities, ageing societies, youthful societies, restructuring of welfare states, structural adjustment etc. Migration is also creating new social divisions within care work, both paid and unpaid.
