Sammanfattning

This paper contributes to a growing field of research on European migrant families in Scandinavia by focusing on transnational care strategies toward children among Polish and Romanian parents working in Sweden. The questions we pose are: What care strategies and care shifts are identified when parent (s) and children live separated due to parental migration depending on gender of the migrant parent, family configuration and inter-generational relations? How do care strategies change over time depending on children’s age, their changing needs and families’ emotional well-being? How are these care strategies negotiated in relation to the changing welfare regimes in both host and home countries? 22 qualitative interviews with migrant parents in Sweden, both men and women, are analysed using the theoretical lenses of situated transnationalism, gendered norms on care and negotiated family commitments. The analysis indicates that family life stages at which migration occurs lead to a plurality of parental care strategies and care shifts, embedded in specific family configurations and gender patterns, having a long-lasting impact on parent-child relationships in the course of migration. The time lens highlights the diversity of temporal adaptations that migrant parents undergo by constantly negotiating the transnational family commitments in relation to children’s age and their changing needs as well as the emotional well-being of entire families. Added to that, transnational care strategies within the families we studied are highly differentiated depending on the resources and capabilities available to migrant parents from the contrasting institutional contexts of the post-socialist and the Swedish welfare states.
