Johanna Fischer is working in project A04 "Global Developments in Health Systems and Long-Term Care as a New Social Risk" and has written her doctoral thesis entitled "The Emergence of Social Policy in the Field of Long-term Care. A Comparative Analysis of the Introduction and Types of Long-term Care Systems in a Global Perspective".
Her work is based on three papers:
- The Introduction of Long-Term Care Systems: The Nascent Diffusion of a Novel Social Policy Field (with Alexander Polte and Meika Sternkopf, forthcoming)
- Comparing long-term care systems: A multi-dimensional, actor-centred typology (with Lorraine Frisina Doetter and Heinz Rothgang, 2021, in Social Policy & Administration)
- The social long-term care insurance model: Comparing actor configurations across countries and time (under review)
Johanna Fischer's work includes the first comprehensive comparative study on the introduction of long-term care systems worldwide and the development of a multi-dimensional, actor-centred typology of long-term care systems. Based on this, she has presented a systematic international comparison of long-term care systems and especially of social insurance-based long-term care systems.
