Abstrakt

This paper introduces differing tax measures and (social) welfare benefits utilized by the Nordic countries (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Iceland) when enabling female labor market participation through the example of childcare infrastructure. This includes a systematization of childcare infrastructure in the five Nordic countries, primarily paid parental leave, regulation of maternal- respectively paternal leave, and universal childcare.
