Abstract

In this article, I revisit my formulation of the 'international division of reproductive labour', also known as the 'care chain', and address its impacts on the study of migrant care workers. I also address future directions in the study of migrant care workers, calling attention to the contributions made in this special issue, specifically the need to focus on elderly care, different organizational arrangements of care, and the geopolitics of care.
