Gender, parenthood and the changing european workplace: young adults negotiating the work-family boundary.

Objective

Transitions is an in depth qualitative research project which aims to examine 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 will examine different individual and household strategies and their consequences for well being at the individual, family and organizational levels. This will be examined in the light of parallel organizational contexts in each country and macro levels of public support in the strategically selected countries: France, Portugal, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the UK in the European Union, Norway, and two candidate countries for EU enlargement: Bulgaria and Slovenia.
