In the global north, falling birthrates, an ageing population, and increased women’s paid employment are creating a huge demand for child and elder care; while in the global south, growing unemployment and underemployment are pushing women to seek work abroad. In this symposium, we discuss how changes in fertility, ageing population and women’s employment patterns in Canada, Japan, and South Korea are driving up demands for care, how these governments are responding through immigration and employment policies, and what these changes mean for global migration.
