Domestic work, gender, and migration in Turkey: Legal framework enabling social reality

Hande Eslen-Ziya, Umut Korkut

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This chapter demonstrates that the composition of the labor market in a host country, the labor demands of the economy, and the related official indifference to migration can foster a gendered composition of migrants. Moreover, the gender and labor dynamics in a host country can illegalize immigration even if the legal infrastructure as well as political discourse does not condone such illegality. In this context, there arises an inevitable conflict across the legal framework, political discourse, and social reality as immigrants find work in the gendered and informal labor market despite the restrictive legal procedures regulating migration.
