Please register here for the online event “Towards a scarcity of care – structural deficiencies and inequalities of the live-in care market in the EU”
Demographic aging and neoliberal policy making lead us to a growing crisis of care. A competitive care market has developed that largely builds on cheap labour force. The precarity long-term care workers find themselves in is especially pronounced in live-in care arrangements. Our newest discussion paper titled “The dependency on East-to-West care labour migration in the EU: addressing inequalities and exploitation of live-in carers” written by Noémi Katona and Elena Zacharenko raises some of the difficulties of live-in carers and also suggests some directions for improving their working conditions. The paper will be presented and afterwards discussed.
Please visit our Facebook-page for the detailed programme.
