Political Economy Forum: Restructuring in the (Global) Care Economy- a Setback of Gender Equality?

The retrenchment of welfare states and flexibilization of labour markets have provoked major changes in the organization of the care economy. Whereas more women have been included into formal employment, care work has increasingly been organized as a market-led service. What is the impact of these changes on the gender distribution of unpaid care and reproductive work at the household level? In how far is the female/male participation in the labour market affected? Who are the care workers and what is the impact of the reorganization of care work on social inequalities linked to gender, class and race/ethnicity?
