Mirjam Katzin has been a doctoral candidate since May 2013. Her research project concerns the privatization of the Swedish elder care, with focus on the care choice system. Her project will analyze the changing role of the (older) citizen in the welfare system. How are social rights defended when the citizen in certain aspects becomes a customer? Which role do contracts with private distributors of elder care play in the relationship between the citizen and the state or municipality? Where does the responsibility for the quality of elder care lie in a marketized elder care system? The project will give an analysis of the changes of legal principles and a development of the understanding of social rights for older persons.
Mirjam Katzin teaches social welfare law, gender and law and constitutional law.
