Global Care Workers in the Norwegian Welfare State: Care Chains, Intersectionality and Social Capital

In this project, attention is drawn to the careers of two groups of migrant care workers in Norway, nurses and au pairs, to the structures that have formed their careers, as well as to the impact on the care institutions of recruiting care workers from abroad.

These are the issues we will address. The issues involve the connections between structural conditions on the global, national and local levels on the one hand and individual life courses on the other. We will make use of, and review critically, literature on transnationalism and gendered work migration as well as the concepts of global care chains, intersectionality and social capital.
