The Australian pairs and their support work context

  • Deborah Luise LutzEmail author


Chapter 5 is the first of two chapters that focus on the ethnographic descriptions of the budget holders with intellectual disabilities and their support workers within the specific context of support work. The descriptive accounts of the people and their environments in this chapter and in Chapter 6 present the diversity and particularity of the ten relationships within their context and follow a chronological fieldwork order (see also Section 1.5). I use these descriptions for the in-depth analysis of the lived experiences of support work relationships by linking them to the concept of ruling relations that I present in Chapter 7 (see also Section in Chapter 3).
