Care and Migration - International Conference
Frankfurt am Main
From 23 aprile to 24 aprile 2009

The conference brings together experts from different disciplines in the field of care and migration, inspired by the renowned American author Arlie Hochschild, who gives a keynote lecture. We mainly engage with examining the impact of the reproductive crisis on receiving countries while also shedding light on its impact on sending countries. Relevant issues include new conditions of domestic and care work, the impact of the financial crisis on social reproduction, the debate on paid care and citizenship as well as transnational care relations. Furthermore, we discuss policy problems, particularly those pertaining to illegality, in the German context, extending our discussion also to the EU level.
