    Emerging literature about male migrants and changing family relations suggests the importance of revisiting the gendered politics of current analyses of the global chains of care. This paper situates care in relation to social reproduction and considers how men ‘do’ care and what this means for (re)constructing masculinities and class in the context of different migration regimes. The paper argues that a better analysis of the contradictions that exist for migrant men and their masculinities in performing caring roles (as sons, brothers, husbands and fathers) across particular settings is needed. Deepening the analyses of the global chains of care in this way has significant implications for understanding how gendered inequality is being (re)configured and for debates about the gendered ethics of care.
