The new social movements shared egalitarian philosophies in which experiential knowledge is accorded higher or equal value to that acquired by formal study (La Tour, 1993). By the turn of the twentyfirst century this influence, together with neoliberal consumerism, had led to the emergence in the health field, for example, of that contradictory beast the ‘lay expert’ (Prior, 2003; Lohan and Coleman, 2005). Validated by both egalitarian and neoliberal consumerist discourses, service users have come to insist on having a say in how public services are designed, delivered and monitored.
Indeed, such reforms can even make the actual quality of care worse, despite appearances to the contrary (Slagsvold, 1995). Public debates on the reform of health and welfare services thus continue to be dominated by academic experts who mainly use a language of economic, technical and legal rationality – a language that in many ways is far from the pragmatic approach to the everyday experience of care that has been the central concern of Nordic feminist research. Nordic feminist research on care – developments over time The earliest English feminist research on care reflected two different discourses.
From a feminist perspective, questions about what ‘care’ really is and what it means to those who give and receive it are of critical importance. Feminist researchers have therefore criticised the perspectives underpinning service reform and planning for not being based on an adequate understanding of the distinctive nature of care and, therefore, for generating measures that are inappropriate for both care workers and those receiving care (Thorsen and Wærness, 1999). It is important to acknowledge that both conventional economic research and feminist research into service provision and delivery are normative, in the sense that both sets of researchers are concerned with both facts and what is good, desirable and possible.
