Abstract: An explosion of research documents the experiences of migrant care workers who work abroad and leave their kin with paid or unpaid caregivers in the sending society. However, research has neglected to fully address the lives of migrant care workers who care for their children locally, within a host space. In this article, the author draws from ethnographic field work with Cape Verdean migrants in Portugal, a context that has recently increased authorized migrants’ access to naturalization and right to reunite with an expanded set of family members. Using ethnographic fieldwork and interviews, the author explores how contextual factors offset or absorb some of the potential benefits of favorable migration policy, deepening gender inequalities within migrant families. Findings illustrate that gendered expectations of caring, on top of the organization of paid care work, create gendered constraints for workers as they negotiate the conflicting demands of paid care work and family life. While Cape Verdean migrant women workers may be able to rely on the help of some relatives to alleviate their own care deficit at home, many find that it is difficult to carry out these culturally specific support networks due the limited availability of viable unpaid caregivers within the community. The data highlights how migration is a gendered process embedded not only in states’ migration policy, but also in the quotidian practices of labor markets, households and individuals.

Abstract: Recently, there has been a kind of “caring turn” in political discourse and a concomitant turn in popular culture. Specifically, the notion of a “caring nation” circulates contemporaneously with an explosion of “socially responsible” media aiming to produce caring investment. These media call upon individuals to affectively care about a given “problem” while drawing upon and capitalizing on existing caring investment. I situate this turn in the context of the “care gap” written about by Arlie Hochschild. I also place it in conversation with Sara Ahmed’s work on affect and other feminist work on care and emotional labor. I argue this turn represents an intensification of previous calls for citizens to fill the care gap left by withdrawal of the state from social services through volunteerism. At present, individuals are not only called upon to do the work of this care, but also to feel deep affective investment in this work.
