Abstract

This article discusses concepts of care mainly as developed in Scandinavian social research, analyzes the institutional differentiation of caring, and introduces a typology of caregiving work. "Caring" is defined differently in different societies, and the structure of care provision also differs. The article concludes with a discussion of the division of labor between public and private and between formal and informal caregiving. These processes, it is argued, interact with the gendered division of labor to produce a gendering of the social rights of citizenship.
