Thesis:

In my PhD Thesis, The Global Biopolitical Economy of Needs: A multisited ethnography of Filipino nurse migration in ageing Finland, I study the global (bio)political power of care and the politics of care, through the case of Filipino nurse immigration in ageing Finland. The thesis, due to be examined in the course of 2016, consists of five original publications (see below) and the synthesis. Moving from the microlevel corporeal encounters and needs of care to the macro level of global political economy, the thesis among other things assesses the question, whether the governance of care related labour migration in Finland is ethically sustainable international politics – and how the present policies could be improved so as to make them more just.
