Abstract "Despite comprehensive care facilities in France, families rely on migrant care work to reconcile work and family life. This paper highlights this phenomenon and pursues two objectives: From an intersectional perspective I discuss how migrant care work is specifically connected to the categories of gender, class, and racelmigration and how it is embedded in the frameworks of the welfare state. Intersectional analysis reveals the construction of power relations and the establishment of hierarchical differences through the actions of the welfare state. Drawing on a normative analysis of care makes it possible to evaluate the care regime in France. For this purpose, principles have been evolved from the inclusive citizenship, sociability, and capabilities approach." (author's abstract)
