In its documentation on migration issues, the European Commission has promoted “circularity” as an efficient way to manage labour mobility. But how does the employment of circular migrants exactly work? And what are its implications for Europe's societal and demographic challenges such as ageing? To answer these questions, this special issue focuses on migrants employed in domestic service and home-care work, in EU countries, as special types of circular migrants, with the aim to promote a scholarly debate on the convenience but also the special challenges of “circularity” in this sector.
