Title:The Logic and the Categories of the Welfare State: Analyzing the support system for the relative care takers in Finland.

Language :Japanese

Abstract :

Being known as a member of the Nordic welfare states, Finland has recently started the municipal support system for the informal relative care takers. With the state responsibility to take care of elderly people, the support system visualized the informal care takers and indicated the ambiguity of the notion of a family, support and rights. This presentation is to examine the border between the care and the support of the elderly people from the field experience in a municipality in Southwest Finland.
