Abstract [en]

As Europe is facing a demographic challenge that in the long run jeopardizes economic growth and sustainable development, we need to deepen our understanding on the interplay of economic and reproductive aspirations and the public policy nexus. With this book we seek to shed more light on the role of increased labour market flexibility and of work-life balance policies for combining family and employment in relation to childbearing choices (intentions, desires) in different fertility and welfare regimes across Europe in the early 21st century. We rely on two key concepts : uncertainty and risk, and incoherence that provide a common platform for the five country studies addressing the tensions young women and couples face making choices about childbearing and paid work in specific institutional contexts.
