Precarity Amongst Women Migrant Nightworkers in Ireland

Project description

Women migrant nightworkers’ marginalisation via precarity and invisibility

The EU-funded PRECNIGHTS project addresses the topic of labour migration and precarity, specifically regarding women migrant nightworkers (WMNs) in Ireland. It intends to contribute novel theory on differential inclusion of WMNs and impact related scholarly debates as well as help advance migrant workers’ rights. The primary aim is to make WMNs visible by examining precarity, migration, gender and nightwork, and how each dimension magnifies the lived experiences of the others. Project work will allow an inclusive analysis of the lack of WMNs’ ‘power and privilege’ and the forms of ‘oppression and inequality’ they face.
