Abstract

<p>The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg presents an interesting case study of the policy dilemmas that confront most developed<p><p>nations. However, in the case of Luxembourg, they are manifest in an independent state which has already tackled many of the economic problems of a transition from a typical 19th Century industrial base to a modern economy, but in a country which in size is not far above that of an English Health Authority District. <p><p><p>The information given in this Discussion Paper is based upon background material supplied by the Embassy of the Grand<p><p>Duchy of Luxembourg, and other more specific reports listed elsewhere in the Bibliography. Much help was also given during personal discussions with people at all levels of Luxembourg Health and Social Services, including the Minister of the Family, the Secretary of State for Social Security, the Secretary of the City of Luxembourg Social Affairs office, representatives of the main private organisations involved in service provision for elderly of health and social domiciliary care, and Senior Civil Servants from the three Ministries - Health, the Family and Social Security. Particular note is made of the invaluable contribution made by Mme N. Kerschen, of CNRS, University of Nanterre, Paris X, and of the Luxembourg Ministry of Social Security. <p><p><p>The conclusions, however, are those of the author.
