Possible topics include:

• What characterizes a feminist approach to aging and/or long-term care and what contributions can it make to theory and policy?

• How do feminist views about “family” affect long-term care approaches?

• What is the structure of income provision for the aged in a particular country or region and what are its ethical implications?

• What are the ethical implications of different kinds of support systems for the dependent elderly?

• How is long-term care labor gendered and what ethical concerns does this raise?

• How can a feminist vision of long-term care accommodate cultural and religious traditions that place special responsibilities for long-term care on women and girls?

• What are the implications of the feminization of labor migration on the provision of long-term care needs around the world?

• What is the structure of labor and or economic policy in a given country or region and what are its ethical implications for family caregivers?
