Synopsis: We often think that care is personal or intimate, whereas citizenship is political and public. In Carefair, Paul Kershaw urges readers to resist this private/public distinction by interrogating care in the context of patriarchy, racial suppression, and class prejudice. The book develops a convincing case for treating caregiving as a matter of citizenship that obliges and empowers all in society – men as much as women.

Carefair is motivated by the rise of duty discourses across neoliberalism, the third way, communitarianism, social conservatism, and feminisms, all of which urge renewed appreciation for obligations in civil society. Although unabashedly feminist, Kershaw argues that convergence between these discourses signals the possibility for compromise in favour of policies that will deter men from free-riding on female care. He recommends amendments to Canadian parental leave, child care, and employment standards as part of a caregiving analogue to workfare – one invites us to rethink the place of care duties and entitlements in our daily lives, public policy, and perspectives on citizenship.

A welcome addition to the literature, Carefair explores the place of private caregiving in social inclusion, the possibility that privileged breadwinners suffer some exclusion, as well as a detailed blueprint for more public investment in work-family balance. It will appeal to policy makers and activists interested in ideas, as well as to theorists with a pragmatic bent, especially students of citizenship, the welfare state, and the sociology of the family.

About the Author: Paul Kershaw is a professor in the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of British Columbia and a faculty member in the Human Early Learning Partnership.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. We often think of care as personal or intimate, and citzenship as political and public. In Carefair, Paul Kershaw urges us to resist this private/public distinction, and makes a convincing case for treating caregiving as a matter of citizenship that obliges and empowers everyone in society. Carefair has its roots in the rise of duty discourses - in neoliberalism, communitarianism, the thrid way, social conservatism, and feminism - that advocate renewed appreciation for obligations in civil society. The convergence of these discourses, Kershaw argues, signals the possibility for political compromise in favour of policies that will deter men from free-riding on female care. The author invites readers to rethink the role of care duties and entitlements in their daily lives, in public policy, and in debates about social inclusion. He provides a detailed blueprint for more public investment in work-family balance, and recommends amendments to Canadian parental leave, child care, and employment standards that would collectively form a caregiving framework analogous to workfare.
