An open conference on the political and social economy of care in Sweden, Finland, Australia, Canada and the UK

 

This conference will focus on the roles of markets and migration in shaping the provision, funding, regulation and distribution of formal and informal care.

It will situate recent developments in the Nordic and liberal welfare states in a broader international context, taking into account the increased movement of people (especially women) around the world and the ever-growing emphasis on private markets.

Speakers will analyse similarities and differences between countries within and between welfare regimes as well as between different areas of care (child care, disability care and elder care).

 

Organisers:

The Nordic Centre of Excellence REASSESS (Reassessing the Nordic Welfare Model)
together with Stockholm University, Department of Social Work and University of New South Wales, Social Policy Research Centre.
