This chapter first explores the context of changes within the family, labour market, and welfare state, within which care work has become a policy issue. Second, it reviews recent policy developments, particularly at the EU level, before returning to the issue of care work itself and, finally, addressing policies for care. The chapter argues that the fundamental insights of the literature of the 1980s (themselves derived from a close study of care) in respect of both gender divisions and inequalities, and the corresponding range of appropriate policies, remain crucial.
