Self-Management and Self-Modification in Older Age and Elderly Care Work

Antero Olakivi's individual project within MICA research group

Dr Antero Olakivi's research in the CoE AgeCare covers a range of topics related to elderly care, including inequalities in care work organizations, contemporary trends in care management, and moralities of caregiving in older age. Olakivi is particularly interested in care workers' and older persons' self-management and self-modification as political imperatives and emerging targets of expert intervention. Olakivi's research incorporates cross-cutting themes of intersectionality and transnationalism.
