My name is Angela Greulich, I am German and I live in Paris, France. I work as Full Professor in Sociology/Demography at I.E.P. Sciences Po Paris. I have also worked as consultant for the OECD and the World Bank. My research focusses on interactions between demographic dynamics, women’s working activities and social policies and in European countries. I am particularly interested in socio-economic differentials of fertility behaviour, their context dependency and their implications for family and labour market policies. My analyses are based on European survey data (mainly EU-SILC) in combination with aggregate data from the OECD Family Data Base and the Human Fertility Data Base.
This blog informs about causes and consequences of gender inequalities in education, employment an income in developing, emerging and developed countries. I discuss important economic, social and political challenges in view of persistent gender inequalities in terms of access to capital, labour, political and social participation. The encouragement of women’s labour market activities and policy interventions allowing women to combine work and family life are in the focus of this blog.
