Österreichische Zeitschrift für Politikwissenschaft, 34:1, 91–102 (2005)


The article explores the relationship between family policies, fertility, employment and care. It shows that similar family policies may exert different effects and argues that an assessment of family policies needs to take gender relations, welfare-state configurations, and labor-market development into account.
