Through a fractured gaze: The OECD, the World Bank and transnational care chains

Through a fractured gaze: The OECD, the World Bank and transnational care chains Transnational care chains can be seen as a wicked problem, i.e. one that requires coordination across a range of jurisdictions.

Abstract

Transnational care chains can be seen as a wicked problem, i.e. one that requires coordination across a range of jurisdictions. Yet international organizations, like other bureaucracies, factor problems. While this is designed to make issues more manageable, it can also inhibit the organization’s ability to grasp, and therefore to deal adequately with, wicked problems. This article examines the way policy research conducted in different parts of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the World Bank manages to capture pieces of the chain but is unable to see the connections between them.
