Junyue Qian's research interests are domestic work, labor market intermediaries, and the informal employment of domestic workers in contemporary China. She joined ILR as a visiting fellow. Her Ph.D. project is an empirical study based on a state-owned domestic service enterprise, which was created by the Women’s Federation of local province. It examines how the enterprise, as a kind of labor market intermediaries, intertwined with the state, industry association and customers, could shape the formalized care market and informal labor market at the same time and how domestic workers show their resistance to such kind of “formalized” domestic work.
