This chapter introduces the book's central arguments as well as the three conceptual lenses through which these arguments develop—the normative model of employment, the gender contract, and citizenship boundaries. It also defines precarious employment, discusses key aspects of international labour regulations, describes the book's multi‐method approach, and summarizes the contents of Chapters 1 to Chapters 7.
