Flavia Piperno looks at a series of studies conducted by CeSPI over the course of the last few years. Empirical research on transnational welfare has been carried out jointly by the Centre for International Political Studies (CeSPI) in Rome and by the International and European Forum of Migration Research (FIERI) in Turin through qualitative interviews, conducted between the winter and spring of 2006, with 60 Romanian and Ukrainian female careworkers residing in Turin and Rome and with 40 family members of female careworkers (often belonging to the same family units as the women interviewed in Italy) in the countries of origin. In addition, to gain a broader overview, 50 observers were also interviewed in all three countries in which the field work was carried out.Development (2007) 50, 63–68. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100431
