Fatherhood in the Nordic welfare states: Comparing care policies and practice (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Fatherhood is in transition, as men try to balance being both active and involved fathers while meeting the demands of the workplace. This book explores these challenges in the context of cross-national policies. The contributors present the most up-to-date research on father involvement with young, preschool-age children in six countries-Finland, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Dr. Gudny Bjoerk Eydal is Professor of Social Work at the University of Iceland. She has conducted comparative research for decades, publishing extensively on child, care and family policies. Dr. Tine Rostgaard is a Professor at Department of Political Science, Aalborg University, Denmark. Her work focuses on comparative research in care policies and practices for children and elderly.
