Working in four teams, researchers in the programme’s Care Systems strand are studying:
- Comparative analysis of policy and practice developments and outcomes in the four UK nations since care responsibilities were devolved to the UK’s national governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, supported by our international partners’ analyses of their own systems;
- Extended, innovative work on care costs and contributions in England’s care system, using existing datasets, analytical innovations developed by Canadian academics, and insights from analysis of data available in other nations;
- Exploring emerging care technologies and their potential to reshape care systems and deliver wellbeing outcomes;
- Innovative statistical analysis, supported by new qualitative research, on the changing role of migrant care labour in the UK’s care system, and its attendant risks and benefits.
