Webinar ‘Implications of the Covid-19 Crisis for Mobile Care Workers in Europe’

The webinar will give a short introduction into the different types of long-term care regimes in Europe and discuss the relevance of migration and mobility for long-term care provision. It will then discuss the links between care funding systems and mobility regimes for care workers, highlighting the links between mobility regimes and care work. Focusing on the case of the long-term care regime in Austria, it will discuss the challenges posed by existing regulations and the effects of Covid-19 crisis on mobile care workers. While the pandemic highlighted the relevance of care workers for long-term care systems in many EU Member States, it also deepened the inequalities and dependencies already existing in transnational care arrangements. The case of Romanian and Slovak live-in carers in Austria underlines the need to better balance the interests of sending and receiving countries in the field of long-term care in Europe.
