Description

This research project investigates how those who experience the double responsibility of care, by analysing resources available to them, their family and kin relationships, and the local policy context. The discussion centres around tensions and negotiations women have with prioritising childcare and elderly care in everyday life, and how economic conditions, social norms, policy configurations and intimate relationships influence upon their practice of prioritisation. With collaborations with local authorities in Japan and South Korea, the research also proposes a suggestion for an inclusive and comprehensive local care system.
