This is an ethnographic account of the transnational caregiving experiences and practices of Australian migrants and refugees, caring for their elderly parents in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and New Zealand. It describes how people respond to unprecedented mobility (both voluntary and forced), globalized job markets and an ageing population.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a fascinating and important book, which as well as providing nuanced and detailed descriptions of the lives and caring experiences of migrants and their families, makes sophisticated use and usefully develops key theoretical ideas...They [the authors] note in previous studies of trans-nationalism a 'gap in scholarship'; this volume goes some way to filling that gap, and deserves to be widely read.' - Sue Yeandle, Ageing& Society

'In the present globalised and internationalised world context, this book is a very relevant and timely contribution to an understanding of what it means to be caring across national borders.' - Dr Mabel Lie SRA:News (Social Research Association)

'...this book is a landmark study in an under-researched area. It will be of great relevance to a broad academic audience and to anyone interested in caregiving and transnational migration.' Lena Nare, Finnish Journal of Ethnicity and Migration
