Call for Papers: Migration and Care Work

Special Issue Call for Papers
The Asia Pacific Journal of Social Work and Development invites you to submit your paper to this forthcoming special issue on:
Migration and Care Work: Comparative Approach to Policies and Practices in Asia

Submission Deadline: 1 April 2017

This special issue intends to investigate how the global care chain manifests in different contexts and embedded in different regimes within Asia. It attempts to analytically distinguish between domestic work and care work even though they may converge within the actual settings and situate them within the larger social welfare regimes and institutions.

The papers revisit the nature of care regimes in East Asia in relation to the migration regimes in order to examine the intersection between the welfare of the care recipients and social rights of the migrants in multiple ways.

It also brings together the perspectives from both sending and receiving countries and shed light on the policies and practices on migrant care workers who are becoming an integral part of the care workforce in Asia.

We’re looking forward to receiving your submissions.
