Submissions are invited for this issue of Fiscal Studies will be edited by Joan Costa-Font (London School of Economics), Thomas Crossley (IFS and Cambridge) Edward Norton (University of Michighan) and Luigi Siciliani (University of York). A workshop will be held before publication to discuss the papers.
Long-term care programs have experienced an expansion of government intervention. Population ageing and social change within families (making informal caregiving costly) put significant pressures on government expenditures. A special issue would bring together ideas and empirical evidence to learn more about how to tackle the increasing demand for long term care programs; to measure costs and benefits of different interventions; to assess ahead of time whether the costs are manageable and under control. We expect to attract a set of papers that would shed some light into how to respond to questions of funding, sustainability, quality, equity and choice.
All submissions to the workshop, to be held at LSE on 3 August 2015, by 1 June 2015 to email@example.com
Later submission only for the special issue will be considered before 1 September 2015.
