Institutions, Causes and Consequences of Family Policy in Post-War Welfare States

Tommy Ferrarini

Tommy Ferrarini uses a macro-comparative, longitudinal and institutional approach to study the origins and the consequences of those institutions affecting family policy in eighteen post-world war welfare democracies. This book argues that the wide variety of cross-national differences in family policy legislation that existed in these societies by the end of the 20th century – and continue to exist today – are structured by different underlying political power constellations based on social class as well as gender.
