Example text

The different types of capital differ in terms of how easily they are converted. Coleman’s (1990) distinction of physical, human and social capital is also often used in migration analysis. According to Coleman (1990: 305), social capital constitutes ‘resources that can be used by the actors to realise their interests’. The author defines social capital by its function. It is ‘a variety of entities with two elements in common: They all consist of some aspect of social structures, and they facilitate certain action of actors – whether persons or corporate actors – within the structure’.

Meanwhile, their households in the place of origin become increasingly dependent on their earnings. Thus, domestic work that can initially be an opportunity, in the long-term may become a ‘trap’ for the migrant. In risk terms, ‘the chance’ is to earn a satisfactory sum of money compared to wages in the migrant’s country of origin. The ‘danger’ is getting ‘stuck’ with a precarious status of residence and with a job that is often undeclared and below the migrant women’s qualifications. This is especially true of modern migration, where the education level of migrant domestic workers is higher than in the past (Lutz 2008).

Living-out is characterised by having several jobs or additional parttime work on top of the main job (Anderson 2000: 44). Migrants who live-out initially have to respond to higher risks than workers who live-in. They must learn about housing and work possibilities, often without knowing the language of the receiving society. They have to cut expenses by accepting poor living conditions. Another drawback is the time and cost related to travelling to various employers (Anderson 2000: 46). In addition, those migrants often have their own domestic and family respon­ sibilities when they return from work.
