Hanna Sjögren, Charlotta Niemistö, Jeff Hearn, Margaux Viallon

Research output: Working paper


This project report derives from the ‘Equal Care - Alone but connected? Digital (in)equalities in care work and generational relationships among older people living alone’ (EQualCare), that is part of the Joint Programming Initiative More Years, Better Lives (JPI MYBL) funding programme. To quote from the original project proposal:

“EQualCare aims to further understanding of, and policy development on, the intersections of digitalisation with intergenerational care work and care relationships of older people living alone, and to contribute to reducing inequalities through collaboration and co-design. EQualCare interrogates inequalities by gender, cultural and socio-economic background both between and within countries, with their very different demographics and policy backgrounds.” (Equal Care - Alone but connected? …, 2020, p. 2)
