Migration, Social Reproduction and Inequality

Part of the Migration, Diasporas and Citizenship Series book series (MDC)


As we saw in the previous chapters, social reproduction occurs across a number of sites and sectors. It also involves a range of educational qualifications and professional experiences that may be differentially valorised depending on who performs them, how their skills are regulated and where they were obtained. Moreover, rights to entry, to work, to form families and to welfare are also selectively given globally based on factors such as colonial links, new political affiliations and the nature of the state and its welfare regime.
