Families of Inequalities- Social and economic consequences of the changing work-family equilibria in European Societies

Objective

This project investigates social change and its correlates in European societies. In specific, the change in social and economic inequalities associated with new welfare-work-family equilibria. The Project therefore focuses on the changes in women s labour market behaviour, the interlinkage between women s employment and family decisions, families’ capacities to compensate for increasing market risks and the consequences of these developments for social and economic inequalities between families in post industrial societies over recent decades, considering the role of the different welfare and labour market arrangements and the way they evolved. It focuses on the new welfare-work-family equilibria analysing the social and economic consequences of these (dis) equilibria for European societies and their capacity to fully integrate their populations, assuring decent employment conditions, adequate social rights and full social participation.
It does so in a strict international comparison, following an interdisciplinary approach between sociology, economics and demography and applying leading edge quantitative methods to adequately treat topics in life cycle perspective.
