The last chapter brings it all together and answers the key question of the book: Which kinds of struggles can we identify? The map of elderly care is outlined with its multilevel governmentality, two different kinds of struggles as major rallying points on the map: silencing and regulation, and with a new vocabulary. The chapter also considers whether and if so, a framework developed in the context of elderly care in a Nordic welfare state can be extended into other welfare contexts and other forms of care. Finally, there is a short introduction to some challenges to the current forms of regulation and whether they may be moving beyond neo-liberalizing.
