Anju Mary Paul is an international migration scholar with research interests in globalization, gender, labor, and race/ethnicity. A unifying theme of her work is its focus on migration to, from, and within Asia. Her dissertation, Multinational Maids: Multistage Migration among Filipino Domestic Workers, explores emerging patterns of multistage labor migration adopted by low-capital migrant domestic workers from the Philippines. These migrants work several years at a time in various “stepping stone” countries with lower entry barriers, until they have accumulated sufficient capital (human, financial, social, and cultural) to move up their destination hierarchy and gain entry into their preferred destination, typically in the West. As a qualitative researcher, her dissertation relies on ethnographic fieldwork and in-depth interviews with 165 Filipino migrants (26 in the Philippines, 69 in the “stepping stone” destinations of Singapore and Hong Kong, and 70 in the end destinations of Canada and the United States) conducted over a three-year period. She has published sole-authored articles in the American Journal of Sociology and Ethnic and Racial Studies.
