18th Annual Seminar 2021

The 18th Annual Seminar 2021 will take place online as Webinar, 16-17th of September 2021

Due to covid19 we again had to cancel the annual seminar in real life for 2021. Instead the webinar on the 16-17th of September 2021 was organized by the Finnish members in Helsinki and included presentations that concerned the theme "The Politics of Parental Leave Policies" in a broad range of countries (see program).


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. Through this page, you can access the programme and Powerpoint presentations from the latest and from earlier annual seminars.
