Europeanization, Care and Gender addresses the recent underexamined developments concerning care as a crucial part of the restructuring of care labour markets in Europe, including contents of care and different forms of care that range from EU legislation level to individual care workers' and cared for experiences. Through a comparative and interdisciplinary approach, this collection examines and further develops current theoretical and political debates about complexities of care and the impact of multilevel changes in Europe. This book provides a foundation for understanding the major restructuration of care that is taking place at the European level as part of the global phenomena of care markets and the complexity of care within research and how it is no longer restricted to the domain of social policy but a pertinent issue within political science, sociology, legal studies and feminist research.
