19th Annual Seminar 2022

The 19th Annual Seminar 2022 takes place in New York City, June 21-22, 2022 

It is organized by the U.S. team members Shirley Gatenio Gabel, Cassandra Engeman, Gayle Kaufman, & Richard Petts and includes presentations concerning the question "Why does leave matter and for whom? Consequences and inequalities of Leave Policies" (see programme).


Since 2004, the network has held an annual international seminar, which brings together members and other participants from many countries. Seminar programmes normally start with a session focused on leave policies in the host country. This is followed by a mix of thematic sessions and sessions on recent developments in particular countries.
