The analysis also examines how these attitudes have changed with the onset of the economic recession in 2007. The findings suggest that public attitudes toward gender issues are largely consistent with welfare regimes, and most notably, reveal a ...

(ii) Are there distinct welfare state regimes that support different levels of family policy? (iii) To what extent have l...
