The existing studies explain 'au pair-ing' as an economic strategy used by East-European women to cope with post-socialist transformation. The aim of this paper is to broaden this interpretation arguing that when becoming 'au pairs', young Slovaks engage with post-socialist transformation more complexly, not only on economical level. In particular the confrontation with post-socialism and importance of the experiences and skills ascribed to the West challenge traditional creation of life projects in the area.
