About the Project
The proposed project is about the financialisation of Europe’s and Ireland’s nursing home sector from a political economy perspective--global investors have increasingly entered and reshaped the sector in recent years. The project will document this process and examine some of its consequences. This project’s conclusions will be relevant to other countries because the same phenomenon is happening elsewhere. Issues and academic fields covered include: social policy, geography, health care, long-term care, privatisation, marketisation, labour studies, critical gerontology, etc.
The project is relevant in light of Covid-19, because it will shed light on how certain types of nursing homes have dealt with Covid-19. Ireland has had a very high number of deaths in nursing homes and so constitutes an ideal case study.
There is space to modify the details of this project depending on the student’s background, so please get in touch with me to discuss.
The funding deadline is late October 2020 so we must move quickly.
