With specific attention to irregular migrant workers - that is to say, those without legal permits to stay in the countries in which they work - this volume focuses on domestic work, presenting studies from ten European countries, including Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain. Offering a comparative analysis of irregular migrants engaged in all kinds of domestic work, the authors explore questions relating to employment conditions, health issues and the family lives of migrants. The book examines the living and working conditions of irregular migrant domestic workers, their relations with employers, their access to basic rights such as sick leave, sick pay, and holiday pay, as well as access to health services. Close consideration is also given to the challenges for family life presented by workers' status as irregular migrants, with regard to their lives both in their countries of origin and with their employers. Through analyses of the often blurred distinction between legality and illegality, the notion of a ’career’ in domestic work and the policy responses of European nations to the growth of irregular migrant domestic work, this volume offers various conceptual developments in the study of migration and domestic work. As such, it will appeal to sociologists, political scientists, geographers and anthropologists with interests in migration, gender, the family and domestic work.

Review:

'The book draws on in-depth research conducted in eight different European countries to explore the work of irregular migrant domestic workers as well as their family lives and health. In the process the book shows the important role that these workers play - independent of their migration status vis-a-vis the individual states - in allowing European welfare states to remain cost-efficient and functional, and European families to better manage the difficult balance of work and family.'Francesca Degiuli, CUNY College of Staten Island, USA'This book truly shows the complexities of irregular migration and the challenges that domestic care workers face in a unique way; Anna Triandafyllidou has, once again, coordinated fascinating and comprehensive new research highlighting the political and more importantly the human realities across Europe today. This book impressively integrates policy analysis with theory while offering glimpses into the lives of real people who care, and who, indeed, are rarely cared for.' Ruby Gropas, College of Europe-Bruges, Belgium
