Building Capstone One

The future of care systems, economies and harnessing Africa’s demographic transition

Inquiry will focus on present arrangements for, and the lived experiences, impacts and value of unpaid and paid provision of early child and long-term care; and on the need, demand, models and opportunities for expanding appropriate public and paid care provisioning as a vehicle for nurturing human capacities, reducing gender inequities and expanding decent work for Africa’s young.

We expect the development of this programme to draw most directly on UoB expertise in areas of child and social care, early child education, gender, families and ageing and global public health.

**We are currently preparing a series of co-creation workshops to set agendas for research in this area**
