Gender, parenthood and the changing European workplace, Young adults negotiating the work-family boundary: Transitions



An in-depth qualitative research project examining how European young adults negotiate motherhood and fatherhood and work-family boundaries in the context of labor market and workplace change, different national welfare state regimes and family and employer supports.
The project assesses different individual and household strategies and their consequences for wellbeing at the individual, family and organisational levels, in the light of parallel organisational contexts in each country and macro levels of public support in strategically selected countries: Bulgaria, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
