Recensies en Artikelen

"Kindler demonstrates how cultural science-oriented risk analysis can contribute to migration studies. This book relates structural constraints to horizons of action, opening a new field of comparative research. A must for students of illegal migration and policymakers." -- Werner Schiffauer, Chair of Comparative Social of Cultural Anthropology, European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) "This book brings us to the crossroads of several topics that attract the attention of sociologists, economists as well as police and immigration officers. We get fascinating insights into home as a place of female migrant work, strategies that migrants and employers apply, the migrants' fears, expectations and resilience." -- Dariusz Stola, Professor, Institute of Political Studies, Polish Academy of Science

A Risky Business?

Ukrainian Migrant Women in Warsaw's Domestic Work Sector

A Risky Business? geeft een gedetailleerde analyse van de besluitvormingsprocessen van vrouwelijke Oekraïense migranten die naar Polen emigreren om daar als huishoudelijke hulp te gaan werken. Deze studie laat zien hoe de sociale banden en migrantenorganisaties de machtsongelijkheid tussen een migrant, de staat en een werkgever effectief verkleinen. A Risky Business? belicht de complexheid aan risico’s enerwaar arbeidsmigranten mee te maken hebben en hun behendige reactie daarop.
