Abstract

The question of work-life balance and the difficulties of integrating multiple roles is attracting considerable interest. This international collection broadens the focus of current debates and presents recent research findings that will aid understanding, and further stimulate both theoretical development and empirical studies. While much previous research has focused on the challenges faced by working mothers, the research presented in this collection extends this by introducing perspectives that have not been widely included in previous work in the field, such as the voice of children, the challenges that students face, the impact of religion on attitudes to work, and the different issues and approaches of employers, trade unions and the state to work-life balance. Findings from a variety of research approaches are discussed, ranging from in-depth interviews to analysis of cross-national survey data.
