Sample text

Responses to risk influence the process of self-identification: a person is classified as ‘careful’ or ‘daring’ based on whether he or she engages in or avoids risk, often attempting to conform to group norms. In an attempt to explain the phenomenon of risk-seeking, the cultural theory introduces a distinction between acceptable and unacceptable risks. Acceptable risks do not pose a cultural threat to a social group, while the unacceptable ones undermine important cultural assumptions and, consequently, a sense of security.

Parreñas (2001) refers to this experience of women shaped by state law and discourse as a ‘dislocation’. Migrant women either subordinate themselves or resist the external force in soci­ ety (in this case, governmental policies or employment agencies’ strate­ gies), attempting to displace their identities; they find the resources nec­ essary to resist or negotiate dislocation in the dominant social structure. In attempting to do that, migrant women may actually recreate or reinforce the existing hierarchies, for example, when migrant women take over domestic work they may reiterate the gendered pattern of domestic work as being ‘women’s work’.

Also, regulations of the domestic work sector differ from country to country. Southern Euro­ pean countries recognise the domestic sector as an area of employment, with Spain establishing annual quotas and Italy allowing the regularisation of domestic workers (Fasano & Zuchini 2002; King & Zontini 2000). The UK has also carried out a regularisation programme for domestic workers (Anderson & Davidson 2004). In 2002, Germany introduced a special recruitment programme for care workers for the elderly; however, recruit­ ment covered only Eastern Europe and was just for up to three years (Lutz 2008: 46).
