Karen Cristensen, University of Bergen, Norway. Ingrid Guldvik, Lillehammer University College, Norway.
'This is a wonderfully clear cross-national study of the working lives and aspirations of migrant care workers in Norway and the UK - lives both enabled and constrained by differing social, cultural, legal and welfare contexts. The analysis illuminates and challenges existing research in migration and care work. Essential reading for students, researchers and teachers in both these areas.' Fiona Williams, University of Leeds, UK 'Christensen and Guldvik bring an insightful migrant-centred perspective to scholarship on the contemporary intersections of migration and care. Their life-course and comparative approach illuminates not only the trajectories and contributions of migrant care workers in Norway and the UK but also the meanings of assistance and "care" in supporting the independent lives of both migrants and welfare users.' Rosa Mas Giralt, University of Leeds, UK
