    Description

    Book project. In the framework of the Nordic welfare state model, the family was an important target for policies both regarding social equality and gender equality. During the last decades welfare policies are facing new problems with implications for families, children and the elderly. The objective for the book is to problematize and discuss how changes in the Nordic welfare policies, changes on the labour market and changing family practices affect living conditions in different groups of families. The book will address how new challenges can be reconciled with the family policies that have been developed over the years in the Nordic nations of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
