Emploi et politique familiale : doit-on s'inspirer du «modèle suédois» ?

Listed author(s):

This paper deals with the impact of family policies on the mothers’ employment in France and Sweden. In order to compare family policies' effects on the mothers’ labour market, we first examine the institutional structures of the two countries, concerning parental leaves programs and public childcare systems. We intend to show how the institutional and societal regimes may affect the extent of labour market integration of mothers. Then we propose a statistical analysis of the situations of mothers in the labour market based on French and Swedish data. We analyse the determinants of part time work and the gender occupational segregation in both countries. Part time work of women is in Sweden the consequence of maternity. In France, it seems is directly linked to the high level of unemployment. The occupational segregation is higher in Sweden : the mothers' employment is much more concentrated in female dominated occupations, often in the public sector than the French one. This could be the consequence of the parental leave.
