Taking a global perspective, contributors explore how fathers realize and represent their gendered work-care balance and how enterprises and experts, in country specific institutional context, provide formal and informal resources, constrains, expectations and social norms that shape their practices.  [...]

In his treatise on Metaphysics, Aristotle, a pioneer in the studying life expectancy and demography more generally, pointed out that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This idea also applies to Population Europe, the network of Europe’s leading demographic research centres: In joining forces, the partner institutes are able to address a much broader regional and thematic scope in their policy dialogue activities, publications and other outreach materials than a single institute could do alone. [...]
Previous OECD and EU work has shown that even native-born children with immigrant parents face persistent disadvantage in the education system, the school-to-work transition, and the labour market. To which degree are these linked with their immigration background, i.e. with the issues faced by their parents? This publication includes cross-country comparative work and provides new insights on the complex issue of the intergenerational transmission of disadvantage for native-born children of immigrants.
