Maria Rita Testa (Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften), Intentions and Childbearing in Contexts. A Life Course Perspective

Vortragsreihe "WIFO-Extern", 20.2.2017 13:15
The adult life of women and men is characterised by a plurality of choices and events pertaining to different life domains, but in the literature pregnancy intentions are normally studied in isolation from intentions pertaining to other spheres of life. We study the correspondence of pregnancy intentions and reproductive outcome in a life course framework, encompassing several life domains such as partnership, education, work and residence. Using longitudinal data from the Generations and Gender Surveys in five European countries (Austria, Bulgaria, France, Hungary, and Lithuania), we examine individuals' pregnancy intentions and subsequent outcomes with a focus on the mediating and moderating role of alternative life course intentions and realisations. We find that adults' life plans are multidimensional and that the more simultaneous intentions individuals have, the less likely they are to achieve their childbearing goals in a short time period. Some intentions, like moving to a new dwelling, facilitate the realisation of birth intentions; others, like changing a job, tend to hinder the realisation of birth intentions. Finally, individuals are more successful in having their intended child in countries that promote a reconciliation of work and family life.

The objective of the FairTax special session on "Fair and Sustainable Taxation" is to promote the exchange of ideas among researchers working on the concept of fair taxation in the European Union as well as on the topic of sustainability with respect to taxation regimes and tax policy. We are looking forward to receiving contributions analysing all the aspects connected with the issue of fair and sustainable taxation, e.g., tax fraud and tax compliance, corrective taxes (e.g. environmental taxes), taxing for growth, cultural and institutional sustainability of taxation, taxes as redistributive tool, gender impact of taxation.

Euroframe Conference on Economic Policy Issues in the European Union: Growth and Inequality – Challenges for EU Economies – Call for Papers

Workshops, Konferenzen und andere Veranstaltungen, 9.6.2017, More Details
The 14th annual Conference on Economic Policy Issues in the European Union in Berlin on Friday 9 June 2017 will focus on two main challenges: economic growth and inequality. Promoting high and socially inclusive growth has been a key issue on the European political agenda since many years. However, economic developments have also affected the distribution of income and wealth, with rising inequalities in a number of EU countries. The Euroframe group welcomes contributions related, but not limited to, the following questions: What is the relationship between economic growth and inequality? What are the effects of international trade, globalisation, and structural change on inequality and growth? What are the impacts of structural reforms on growth and inequality? What are the impacts of labour market institutions and financial regulation and deregulation on growth and inequality? What are the effects of fiscal and monetary policies on inequality? Is it politically sustainable to accept more inequality or should inequalities be reduced in the EU and if so, how?
