The Nordic welfare model has become an ideal in feminist literature and in welfare state studies. This has heightened scientific and political interest in the model and its key aspects, including the provision and production of care as public responsibility. In this engaging volume, contributors from various professional disciplines - including sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists and educationalists - provide a comprehensive overview of the complex state of paid work in social care within the Nordic welfare states and of the dilemmas facing state-provided care in the region. They develop insights into the conditions, practices and trends in the area of paid care in the social and health care sector, insights that expose the dilemmas and tensions associated with paid care and care education. Divided into four parts, the book will greatly interest academics, post-graduate students and professionals concerned with the Nordic model and welfare states. It will also benefit those from outside the region interested in a specific Nordic tradition of research on publicly-provided care and the current dilemmas and challenges facing training in care.
