In this beautifully-argued book, Karen Cristensen and Ingrid Guldvik provide a comparatively-based insight to the historical context for public care work and show how migration policies, general welfare and long-term care policies (including the cash-for-care schemes) as well as cultural differences in values in the UK and Norway set the context for how migrant care workers can realise their individual life projects. Through viewing migrants as individuals who actively construct their lives within the options and conditions they are given at any time, they bring to the discussion an awareness of what might be called ’a new type of migrant’ one who is neither a victim of the divide between the global north and the global south, nor someone leaving family behind, but individuals using care work as a part of their own life project of potential self-improvement.
Karen Cristensen, University of Bergen, Norway. Ingrid Guldvik, Lillehammer University College, Norway.
’This is a wonderfully clear cross-national study of the working lives and aspirations of migrant care workers in Norway and the UK - lives both enabled and constrained by differing social, cultural, legal and welfare contexts. The analysis illuminates and challenges existing research in migration and care work. Essential reading for students, researchers and teachers in both these areas.’ Fiona Williams, University of Leeds, UK ’Christensen and Guldvik bring an insightful migrant-centred perspective to scholarship on the contemporary intersections of migration and care. Their life-course and comparative approach illuminates not only the trajectories and contributions of migrant care workers in Norway and the UK but also the meanings of assistance and care� in supporting the independent lives of both migrants and welfare users.’ Rosa Mas Giralt, University of Leeds, UK
