In the past decade there has been considerable concern over issues of funding and provision of care in public and social policy (Razavi 2007a). Although there is an increasing interest in this field, so far there has been little research on social policy and care provisioning in the global South, especially as they pertain to migration and gender relations. However, migration, especially that of women, is changing care landscapes the world over, including in Southern countries, and there is an urgent need for research in this area in order to guide the setting up of effective and appropriate social policy. This chapter looks at some conceptual issues that could steer new research in this field.
