Developing a new Network of Researchers on Contemporary European Motherhood

Project description

Transforming contemporary debates about motherhood in Europe

The social and cultural meaning of motherhood has undergone significant change in Europe in recent years. These changes have a significant impact on how women experience motherhood. The objective of the EU-funded MotherNet project, a TWINNING programme, is to bring together the expertise in different parts of Europe to stimulate innovative, cross-disciplinary, and policy-relevant research about motherhood; improve the quality of maternal care/support services; influence work/life balance policies; and increase public awareness about the social and cultural construction of motherhood. The project will offer training, mentoring and international summer schools, transforming contemporary debates about motherhood in Europe.
