Abstract (German)

Der Zweck der Untersuchung ist eine vergleichende Analyse von Pflegearbeit in europäischen Wohlfahrtsstaaten. Unterschiedliche Pflegegeldmodelle haben unterschiedliche Auswirkungen auf die Organisation von bezahlter und unbezahlter Pflege, die Kommodifizierung von Pflege, 'Arbeitgeber-Arbeitnehmer-Beziehungen' in der Pflege oder den Arbeitsmarkt. Qualitative Interviews und quantitative Informationen werden zur Analyse dieser Fragen herangezogen.


Abstract (English)

The overall purpose of the study is to conduct a comparative, cross-national, study of care-work in modern European welfare states. Different types of payments for care have different implications for the organisation of paid or unpaid care, on the commodification of care, employer-employee relationships in care or labour market implications. Qualitative research interviews and quantitative data will be used to investigate these issues.
