RC19 Sociology of Poverty, Social Welfare and Social Policy (host committee)

Language: English

This open session welcomes papers that address issues of care, migration and policy regimes. We are interested in papers that use comparative and multi-scalar analytical lens to understand how broad socio-demographic and economic trends, welfare state developments, changes in the gendered division of labor and household patterns, care worker organizations, and international organizations interact with each other, resulting in the forms transnational care migration we see today. We are open to a wide range of methods and there is no regional restriction.
