Care is an essential element of society and a crucial service of social, economic and political institutions. Thus, care is political. Care is also work, both formal and informal, paid and unpaid, recognized and not.
While care is a fundamental feature of how families, societies and economies are organised, care is largely devaluated or even neglected in social and economic policy, and therefore carries many injustices and inequalities.
This seminar will attend to some of the most prominent and pressing issues on the care crisis in the Nordic context, especially focusing on labour and inequality.
A light lunch will be served.
