DESCRIPTION

The book's focus is on the implications for Irish social policy of social change including the need to respond to changes resulting from immigration and shifts within the Irish welfare economy that have created new needs for social care. Many of the chapters locate Irish debates about care in a broader social policy context. This is a companion volume to Contemporary Irish Social Policy and Theorising Irish Social Policy .
