This team’s work frames and informs all our research on Sustainable Care. Led by Professor of Political Economy Allister McGregor, with key team members Dr Kate Hamblin, Professor Norah Keating, Madeleine Starr MBE, Professor Luke Clements and Professor Sue Yeandle, it works closely with the eight teams delivering the programme’s research on Care Systems and on Care Work and Relationships, and with the programme’s UK and international academic and policy partners.
Everyone in the Sustainable Care team is contributing to the programme’s development of theoretical and conceptual issues relating to the sustainability of care. This team’s work is crucial for programme integration. It promotes the team’s mutual learning and ensures consistent connections between theory and practice through engagement with all programme stakeholders.
The team runs theory-building activities for the entire Sustainable Care programme team, works closely with our network of PhD students and other early career researchers, and engages with leading international scholars in our field. It aims to initiate and support new evidence-based thinking, writing and debate, and to work with our programme teams and partners to develop innovative methods and design meaningful and relevant indicators and analyses.
