Synopsis

Policy makers across the world are confronting issues relating to lone parents and employment, with many governments seeking to increase the participation of lone parents in the labour market.

This book is based on an up-to-date analysis of provisions within particular countries, examining whether and how policies support and encourage employment, and drawing out policy lessons. The countries examined are the UK, USA, Australia, France, the Netherlands and Norway. Unlike other studies which have considered this issue, this book includes both country-specific chapters and makes thematic comparisons across countries. Chapters are written by leading experts on lone parenthood in each country.

Lone parents, employment and social policy is essential reading for students in social policy, sociology, human geography, gender and women's studies, as well as policy makers and practitioners in the field of lone parents and employment. It will be of interest to those who want to know more about these policy developments but also to those interested in broader issues about gender and welfare states.

Jane Millar is a Professor of Social Policy at the University of Bath, UK. She is one of the leading academics in this field and has written extensively on the subject of lone parenthood, poverty and gender. Karen Rowlingson is a Lecturer in Social Research at the University of Bath, UK and has published books on lone parenthood, social security policy in Britain, and family poverty.
