From 02 to 03 May 2024, our PhD Student Catharina Lopes Scodro attended the workshop “Digital Intermediaries in Domestic and Care Work” organised by Eva Kocher (Europa-Universität Viadrina) and Lorena Poblete (CONICET – Universidad Nacional de San Martín).

The workshop took place at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law in Oñati (Basque Country/Spain), one of the renown “homes” of socio-legal research. It focused on the “Digital Intermediaries in Domestic and Care Work” bringing together researchers on domestic work issues from Europe and Latin America, through an interdisciplinary perspective. Its relevance for Catharina’s research stems from the ever increasing role of websites – and social networks – for the placement of au pairs in European countries, along with the broad discussion on (migrant) domestic work.
