Description

Contributors analyze the care economy in the developing world, at a moment when existing systems are under strain and new ideas are coming into focus.

  • Offers the first global, regionally diverse study of the invisible economy of care, including case studies from diverse regional contexts of Africa, Asia and Latin America
  • Frames the debate on care and highlights policy experimentation and ideas currently in flux
  • Includes new research and data on developing countries, showing how, where care options for the socially disadvantaged are limited, failing to socialize the costs of care exacerbates existing inequalities
  • Comes at a moment when, if not yet marked by a generalized care crisis, the world s existing systems are under strain and in need of rethinking
  • Features introductory chapters that set out the conceptual framework and findings on individual country studies, and a concluding chapter that draws out the transnational dimensions of care
