Working and Caring in Europe. Working women facing the dependency of their frail elderly parents.
This project is part of a larger project on Working and Caring in Europe, funded by the French Ministry of Labour (MIRE) and coordinated by the Ecole nationale de la santé publique (ENSP) at Rennes. The aim is to explore how middle aged women in different working situations and their families deal with the demands of care coming from their frail elderly parents and parents in law in European countries having different institutional frameworks with regard to caring services for the frail elderly. The WZB
research group is responsible for the German case and has so far published a WZB discussion paper SP I 2009-401.
