Transnational global care mobilities and labour migration

This research explores migrant women’s encounters with education and labour, in formal and informal contexts. The projects foreground transnational, temporary migration flows from and into rural areas, and in employment arrangements as au pairs. Of interest are the ways in which these encounters shape migrant experiences and aspirations, as well as tensions around the intersections of reproductive labour, cultural exchange, home and mothering, and domestic violence. The research contributes critical insights into the gendered intersections and disconnections of labour and education migration patterns.
