Press play below to listen to the episode.
During the episode, Duncan and Teppo explore the key messages and the concept of ‘Care poverty’, providing an easily-digestible overview of this important work.
This book is a product of a quite a long process. Maybe even 20 years. I’ve been trying to think of an approach to social care, long-term care that would not only focus on resources or services that are provided, but it would really dig into the key question that I think that we should really be focussing on, that is whether people who need help and support really get it, or not. That’s really the key idea, or the key question, of this book.Professor Teppo Kröger
Teppo is also asked about his research interests, the influence of feminist social policy, gerontology and social inequality literature on his research and gives great advice for researchers looking to write their first book.
