CfP – Tackling Long-Term Care Needs in Ageing Societies in (Post) Pandemic Times: Multidisciplinary Research Approaches in an International Perspective

Deadline 31.07.2022

This Special Issue seeks after theoretical and empirical papers that deal with long-term care challenges at local, national and international level, and at possible strategies for addressing them. Submissions may investigate policy issues in regards with the role played by public and private (including profit and non-profit) stakeholders in this field, and also analyse how dynamics and interactions may be changing to take into account the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Papers may also consider how worldwide phenomena like rising life expectancy and population aging might challenge societal arrangements and healthcare systems throughout the developed world. Longevity is one of the greatest achievements attained in the recent past due to scientific, social and technological progress, and papers focusing on the analysis of longevity patterns and its relation with health, social and long-term care aspects are welcome. We encourage particularly authors to submit comparative papers and articles from low and middle-income countries.
