This article introduces the theme of the special issue on Outsourcing Domestic (Care) Work. We conceptualize outsourcing of domestic work as a process by which both the state and family increase their reliance on private markets to carry out both care and non-care domestic services. We argue that this outsourcing is happening in response to three deficits that many wealthy European countries face- care deficit, time deficit, and job deficit.
