COVID-19 and the Centrality of Care: Creating a Resilient and Equitable Society (CARES)

Project Details


The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the extent to which unpaid and paid care work underpins the global economy. The overarching aim of this small-scale project is to explore the impact of the crisis on the gendered and intersectional distribution of unpaid care work (broadly defined by Elson (2000) as child, adult/elder care, housework, and voluntary community work); and to understand the extent of pandemic-induced (temporary) shifts in care roles within households, focusing on the country context of England.
