Summary
Across the world, the provision of care faces mounting challenges <U+0127> � what has been widely referred to as a 'crisis of care'. In the global North, international migrants have increasingly supplemented the unpaid or low-paid care labour of women <U+0127> � as domestic workers, nannies, care assistants and nurses <U+0127> � in the private sphere of the home and in publicly and privately funded care services. This volume brings together international scholars on migration and care to examine the global construction of migrant care labour. The volume makes connections across theory, policy and politics with respect to care, work and migration; the inequalities of gender, race/ethnicity, class, nationality and immigration status that migrant care labour embodies; the inequalities between the global North and South, different regions and countries; the different institutional contexts of care labour that cut across the public and the private; and the different sites of political mobilisation and governance that have developed around migration and care work.--
