Who's involved?

Political scientists and social policy analysts have described how policy ends and means for broad areas have differed between periods since 1980. This project analyses the content of policy statements supplemented with analyses of publicly available data and collections and analyses led by the author to investigate to analyse continuity and change in the prioritisation of policy goals, assumptions about the effects of policy means, and instruments for securing policy implementation for social and long-term care for older people.
