Family policies and fertility in Europe: fertility policies at the intersection of gender policies, employment policies and care policies
AbstractThis article explores the relationship between family policies, fertility, employment and care. It suggests that similar family policies are likely to exert different effects in different contexts. It argues that a proper assessment of effects of family policies needs to take the combined spectrum of gender relations, welfare-state structures, and labor-market development into account.
