La migración femenina, el trabajo doméstico asalariado y la violación de los derechos humanos

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter


The feminization of migrations, especially in the Mediterranean countries of Europe, is associated with new forms of exploitation of migrant labor. This article aims to analyze from this point of view the market of domestic and care work of migrant women in the homes of Italian families, placing it in relation to the deficiencies of national social policies. The analysis of this phenomenon in the Italian context - developed with the support of a series of interviews with migrant workers - reveals about these women and their families of origin the violation of certain fundamental human rights : primarily the right to the family unity, bound by the rules of family reunification, by the cohabitation often enforced with employers and the large number of working hours; secondly the right of the child to parental care, which is violated by the fact that many mothers are forced to migrate to ensure their children a decent life. If these rights are universally recognized, these pages also consider the violation of a more complex and complete right to care, with universal and unconditional access, which results structurally violated by the rules of domestic work performed by immigrant women.
