WEB 1027 Domestic Workers (WEBINAR)

Thursday 09 July 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:15 pm

An examination of the requirements of the visas for domestic workers in private and in diplomatic households, with a particular focus on how to navigate the ethical problems thrown up by the power relationship between employer and worker.
