Care Migration in Europe: Policies and Patterns in Live-in Elder Care Circulation
Sprache des Titels:
Over the last two decades, the employment of predominately female live-in care workers has increased considerably within Europe, mainly, but not exclusively, in Western European countries. Increased labor market participation of women as well as demographic changes led to so-called care gaps that are ? at least partially ? filled by circularly migrating care givers typically from new EU member countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Even though there are similarities, different patterns as well as a variety of regime and policy changes can be observed in different countries. However, precarious working conditions seem to be a common denominator across most receiving countries. In this online workshop, six papers will be presented by Petra Ezzedine (Charles University Prague), Oliver Fisher (National Institute of Health and Science on Ageing, Italy), Simone Habel (Phil.-Theol. Hochschule Sankt Georgen), Veronika Prieler (Johannes Kepler University Linz), Marlene Seiffarth (University of Bremen), and Martina Sekulová (Slovak Academy of Sciences).
