Chapter 2 opens with a description of the growing role of female migrant labor in the provision of home eldercare assistance and then proceeds to explore how this labor force became available. In particular, the chapter explores how different actors—such as sending and receiving countries, supranational organizations such as the IMF and the World Bank, and regional ones such as the European Union—participate in generating, managing, and sustaining migration flows from the Global South to the Global North. Through this analysis the chapter describes global trends that have contributed to the creation of a new division of reproductive labor, to the growth of Global Care Chains, and to the “feminization” of migration processes.
