Family policies are crucial in easing the often-competing responsibilities between work and family when young children are present. Work-life reconciliation policies aim to contribute to the achievement of gender equality by promoting the participation of women in the labour market, equal division of caring responsibilities between men and women and the closing of the gender gap in earnings, income and pensions benefits. In the light of the ongoing demographic changes, mainly the ageing population, and increasing pressure of the public expenditure, the needs for informal care and for a more efficient balancing between work and family obligations are on the rise.

Against this background, LIS Cross-national Data Center in Luxembourg and the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) convened the second international workshop of the (LIS)2ER initiative. The workshop was entitled “Policies to Fight Inequality: The Case of Work-life Reconciliation and Family Policies”, and took place on November 25th – 26th 2021 in Belval, Luxembourg.
