Special Collection 31

The new roles of women and men and implications for families and societies

Published 23 May 2023

This Special Collection, edited by Livia Sz. Oláh, Rudolf Richter and Irena E. Kotowska, addresses the gendered employment effects shaping family patterns, and the importance of societal, labour market, and policy contexts for emerging new fatherhood. The two comparative and four country case studies highlight the evolving role of economic uncertainty for the dynamics of family relationship, providing some first evidence on how evolving gender roles play out in family changes under conditions of national and global insecurities. Avenues for further research are presented in the summary of this Special Collection.
