C189: A Tool for States or for Paid Domestic Workers? Examples from Ecuador and India
However, when one gets closer to the local level, the relationship between social movements, States and international organizations is not that clear cut. The example of Ecuador and India will show two opposite ways in which States and grassroots organizations have reciprocally positioned themselves around this issue. The international campaign for C189 will be seen as a tool that has been differently be taken up by institutional and non-institutional actors to pursue the own political agendas, and their strategies of alliance/separation from other relevant actors. For both country cases, the presentation will be based on material from ethnographic fieldwork (in Quito and New Delhi) and on the analysis of policy documents from different local and international stakeholders. This study is part of a larger project currently in-progress.
