IFN Stockholm Conference 2008


Family, Children and Work was the theme for the IFN Stockholm Conference 2008, which took place in Vaxholm in the Stockholm Archipelago on May 22–23.

An aging population and a declining birthrate have made the access to qualified work force a burning issue within most OECD countries. The conditions for combining career and family life are today as much a question about supply of human capital as equality and well-being for parents and children. About 20 leading international researchers presented and discussed high quality empirical and theoretical research on this topic.
