A mounting crisis of care on a global scale has become one of urgent concern during the last several decades. With such a trend in mind, this chapter addresses how and with what consequences has care work become a transnational commodity. More specifically, drawing on the wide-ranging and rich feminist literature on care and migration in International Political Economy (IPE) and other fields, it seeks to demonstrate: (a) how the escalated commodification of care work on a global scale creates, and is promoted by, the contradictions and tensions within the contemporary crisis; and, (b) how this has perpetuated the geopolitical as well as gendered, racialized and classed inequalities. The primary objective of the chapter is to highlight some future research agendas in order to critically tackle the global care crisis in the neoliberal order.
