Paid Domestic Work as ‘Decent Work’: Global Aspirations and Indian Realities – A Report

This Report is based on the Workshop Paid Domestic Work as ‘Decent Work’: Global Aspirations and Indian Realities which was held virtually on 18th-20th August 2020 and attended by 50 people. It contains a summary of the presentations by our speakers, discussants, and participants. Speakers approached the topic from various disciplines including law, history, sociology, anthropology and political science even as activists, trade union leaders, representatives from the International Labour Organisation and law practitioners made time to share their insights on COVID-induced shifts in paid domestic work and renewed possibilities for mobilization, social action litigation and a reimagination of labour laws for the unorganised sector. The Report is available below.
