British Academy 2009-10

Dr Helen Crowley has a grant from the British Academy to undertake a study of the significance of social cohesion for strategies of settlement and family formation of skilled and unskilled migrant women workers in the care sector.

The grant funds pilot fieldwork trips to Scotland, Australia and Ireland to carry out interviews with migrant women working in the care sectors of these countries looking particularly at their different migration regimes. The findings will be presented in conference papers and two journal articles.
