This article provides an intersectional and multi-scalar analysis of migrant care work. First, it situates this as a dynamic in the transnational political economy care, alongside the transnational movement of care capital, the transnationalisa-tion of care commitments, and transnational governance by international organi-sations, as well as the transnational activism of networks of migrant care and do-mestic workers. Second, the article explains the multi-scalar nature of this political economy of care across different scales of micro, meso and macro, each charac-terised by forms of intersectionality. At the micro, care work involves complex in-tersecting social and interpersonal relations of power and vulnerability. These shape and are shaped at the meso scale where national care regimes intersect with employment and migration regimes. These are further constituted through the in-tersections of four crises at the macro-global scale: finance, ecology, care, and migration. The article ends by considering strategies for global care justice.
Keywords: Migration and care; transnational political economy of care; multi-scalar; intersectionality; global crises; ethics of care.
