16th Annual Seminar 2019

The 16th Annual Seminar 2019 took place at the University of Hamburg, Germany, 29 to 30 August. The seminar addressed the issue ‘Who gets what, how much and why? Inclusion and exclusion in access to paid leave for parents and their children within and between countries’.

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.
