about

Workers providing social and health care services lie at the heart of migration patterns underpinning current gobalization processes. Using a 'global care chains' perspective the author describes and analyses the experiences of migrant care workers, maps the extent, forms and governance of care services internationalisation and considers the policy implications in developed and developing countries. This multi-disciplinary analysis draws on original empirical research and advances a theoretical perspective that sheds new light on contemporary and historical dimensions of this migration.
NICOLA YEATES is Senior Lecturer in Social Policy at the Open University, UK. She is author of Globalization and Social Policy: Beyond the State?
