Abstract: This paper deals with an acute problem in many of aging societies: the growing population of elderly is not proportionally matched by the increasing number of care takers, causing the so-called 'care deficit'. Intriguingly, a relatively weak welfare regime tends to open up its labour market in care sector, resulting in the increase of foreign care workers, mostly female, which in turn leads to a significant social transformation of 'household'. Here, globalization stops being the sole property of finance or environment, well penetrating into the most intimate sphere. Based on the cases in East Asia, this paper analyzes the backgrounds, the present state, and problems associated with this phenomenon coined as 'global householding'.
