Summary
"By bringing together the work of leading international scholars in the field of care, this book aims to explore the nature and extent of the 'care deficit' problem in European societies and how effective the different care systems are in dealing with these problems through policy innovation. This volume combines theoretical and conceptual debates, cross-national comparisons and analytically-driven case studies. From different inter-disciplinary approaches and methodologies, the questions this project set to explore are the ways in which European countries are facing similar challenges and the factors that help us understand the wide variety of responses that are being offered"--
