Über dieses Buch

In the context of ageing populations, increasing participation of women in the labour market, growing marketisation of care provision, and, most importantly, global inequalities, racialised care workers have come to fulfil a key role within older-age care in western European societies. This book presents a gendered political economy of migrant and minority ethnic care workers’ experiences in older-age care in London, Paris and Madrid. Its cross-national comparative approach allows for a differentiated analysis of the workings of migration, employment and care regimes in three capital cities, with similarly segmented care sectors, yet diverse policies and implications for care workers. Sahraoui provides a novel perspective that advances debates on the ethics of care by foregrounding the voices of racialised care workers and contributing to feminist moral philosophy. Racialised Workers and European Older-Age Care offers unique insights into the meanings of care labour and the challenges arising from processes of neoliberal marketisation, precarisation and institutional racism. The book sketches out an intersectional understanding of the exploitative relationships on which care and social reproduction currently rely and demonstrates why it matters to move care from the margins of society to its centre.

This innovative and compelling analysis will appeal to students and scholars of Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science and Social Policy, as well as those working in the interdisciplinary sub-fields of Gender, Migration, Labour, and Racism Studies.

Stimmen zum Buch

“Sahraoui’s wonderfully illuminating, analytically profound and sensitive study … provides a hugely significant and original contribution to our understanding of the personal, political and policy dynamics of gendered and racialised care work in post-colonial and neo-liberalised Europe.” (Fiona Williams, University of Leeds, UK)

“A much-needed contribution to scholarship on the transnational political economy of care work, which redefines how we understand both the gendered and racialised positioning of migrant workers and the nature of care itself.” (Irene Gedalof, School of Oriental and African Studies, UK)

“This book is a remarkable analysis of racialised care workers in Europe … . A wonderful and brilliant comparative work.” (Catherine Wihtol de Wenden, Sciences Po Paris, France)
