Teppo Kröger

Teppo Kröger is Professor of Social and Public Policy at the Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy of the University of Jyväskylä in Finland.

Teppo will be talking about the concept of ‘care poverty’ which is the focus of his latest book. Teppo leads the Centre of Excellence in Research on Ageing and Care (CoE AgeCare). His research analyses care policy from local, comparative and global perspectives. His studies have focused on, for example, social care for older people, integration of formal and informal care, conditions of care work and reconciliation of caring and paid employment.

Teppo has drafted new conceptual perspectives for the analysis of care policy, including welfare municipality, weak universalism, dedomestication, demographic panic, care capital and care poverty.
