Abstrakt

In investigating global and regional care chains, scholars have traditionally adopted a sociological bottom-up approach, but more attention has recently been focused on the role of the state. Despite this new attention to states and the ways in which they condition care chains, the existing frameworks cannot grasp the complexity of potential struggles and tensions within states and at the various levels of the state. In outlining a broad and tentative analytical framework for exploration of the role of the state in shaping global and regional care chains, this theoretical article combines discursive policy analysis with feminist state and multi-level governance theories. Paying attention to the role of the state, we focus on the framing of policy problems that are important for care chains and on potential tensions between different framings within a state and across the different levels of the state. We argue that these framings should be investigated in both receiving and sending states.
