research project

The original research project around the relationship between gender, immigration and the labor market that I have been developing at D'C has been challenged in recent years by continuing global socio-economic and political changes. These changes have had direct consequences on the populations with whom we work and have opened new senses of research. The forms of organization of immigrant domestic workers, the dynamics and the size of these forms, represent the axis around which we (re) focused our main research plan. The relation of the universe of immigrant labor to the question of its representation, through union and associative activity, has proved fundamental to understand the political organization of the domestic work sector.

 

Research on enlargement and the generalization of precarious configurations in labor relations, rising unemployment and the segmentation of the labor market has represented one of D'C's main axes of analysis in the thematic line 'Labor'. Membership in this line allowed the project on immigrant domestic work to broaden the scope of its research and the depth of its inquiry into the dominant models of organization of public policies in the fields of immigration, labor and gender. Examination of public debates on the current legal framework for domestic work and the greater question of the participation of immigrant women in the national labor market point to the design of a theoretical framework that clarifies the consequences of the current recessive conjuncture for the traditional determinants of the migration process. The connection of the project with ongoing contiguous research in D'C, of ​​a more quantitative methodological nature, and with non-academic institutions implemented in the field have allowed significant partnerships and results in what we understand as the capital objectives of a research center on socio-economic change.
