Quotation Schneider, Ulrike. 2014. Long-term care between the local and the global. 3rd International Conference on evidence-based policy in long-term care, London, Gro├čbritannien, 31.08-03.09. Invited Talk




Long-term care is generally not considered an international and transnational policy domain. Social care service provision is location-bound and appears strongly locally anchored. However, over the past decades care service delivery systems have steadily responded to economic and political globalization. Today, domestic care regimes make use of international care resources including labour, investments, concepts and ideas. A selected number of care providers deliver services worldwide and care migration relates far distant locations. As a result, domestic long-term care systems and policies are now intertwined with international trade and migration policies and are embedded in international law and discourse. Major changes in the domestic care regime are likely to reverberate in other countries' labour and care markets and vice versa. This plenary speech looks at international and transnational elements in the development of long-term care systems and related politics. It maps out major modes of international and transnational service delivery in long-term care and discusses the ensuing challenges for long-term care reform.
