Kids and (or) Career? The Effects of Family Policies in Germany
As a DAAD/AICGS Research Fellow from June to July 2018, Hanna Wang worked on her dissertation studying the effects of family policies on women’s work and childbearing decisions in Germany. In the recent decades there have been many changes in family policies such as paid parental leave, childcare subsidies, and per-child subsidies in OECD countries including Germany, the U.S., and other European countries. These reforms respond to concerns about falling birth rates, low maternal employment, and large gender gaps in wages.
