Bridging the integration gap: The relationship between women's employment, childcare costs and integration policies
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
There is an unexplained gap in employment between native-born and foreign-born women in most European countries and it is not evident how it can be closed. This essay studies some possible explanations of the gap by looking at the effect of childcare costs and integration policies, through regression analysis. The individual effects are not significant, but the results do however give some indication that the degree of integration policies in a country can change the effect of welfare policies such as childcare.
