Abstract or Table of Contents

Abstract: The following report contributes to our knowledge about labour market behaviour in an enlarged Europe with a special focus on gender aspects and on cross-national settings embedded in different welfare state architecture. First, we deal with the determinants of cross-country variations in gendered employment patterns by drawing on the 'Households, Work and Flexibility' (HWF) survey. Second, we use these data to investigate which factors make employees more or less satisfied with theirjobs, with a special focus on gender aspects. Third, we look at employment patterns from a life course perspective in an enlargedEurope by using official data from various sources (OECD, Eurostat). Finally, drawing on the Eurobarometer Surveys on Time Use EB 60.3 (EU-15) and CCEB 2003 (Candidate Countries), we investigate female labour market participation over the life course.;
