1. GRADE Centre Gender Summer School 2017 “Gendering (In)formal Social Protection: Gender, Migration and Resistance”

In recent years, research on transnational social protection has been vividly discussed in migration research, studies on welfare, care and transnational families. These debates include concepts of care/social reproduction, global care chains and care circulation, gendered welfare regimes and global economy of care; their focus is/was on the role of migrants as both caregivers and care receivers. Many of these concepts touch the aspects of formality and informality in the provision of social protection and care, and employ a feminist perspective. Taking these debates as the starting point, the aim of the Summer School is to bring together junior and senior researchers, to discuss and to stimulate a dialogue between researchers whose research focus is on formal and informal aspects of social protection and care in the context of gender relations.
