New tool to measure disparities in family policies
Family policies serve to protect family wellbeing. They can include parental leave, childcare and tax credit. However, these policies can have different implications for different social groups. Since their impact is difficult to quantify and measure, it is impossible to formulate fair, effective methods avoiding inequalities. The EU-funded FAMPOT project is an MSCA supported Fellowship that will create a novel tool to measure gender and socioeconomic disparities in access to family policy benefits. It will enable improved detection and analysis of structural inequalities for more fair and efficient policies of family support.
