Description

Social Care, Feminism, and Human Rights: Future Directions

Co-organised by the WiSE Centre for Economic Justice at Glasgow Caledonian University and the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE), this workshop aims to prompt debate around current and future attitudes to social care. Drawing specifically on feminist and human rights approaches to care, and the social model of disability, we will discuss future directions for social care, both in Scotland and internationally.
