About this item

Long-term care is an increasingly important issue in many contemporary welfare states around the globe given ageing populations. This groundbreaking book provides detailed case-studies of 11 EU-member states’ welfare regimes within Europe to show how welfare states organize, structures and deliver long-term care, and whether there is a social investment perspective in the delivery of long-term care. This perspective is important as the demographic transitions impact is often used as an argument for the existence of economic pressure on welfare states, and a need for either direct retrenchment or attempts to reduce welfare state spending. The book’s chapters will look specifically into how different welfare states have focussed on long-term care in recent years and what type of changes have taken place with regard to ageing populations and ambitions to curb increases in public sector spending in this area. They describe the development in long-term care for the elderly after the financial crisis and also discuss the boundaries between state and civil society in the different welfare states' approach to the delivery of care.
