Despite the increasing policy interest in work-life balance issues, relatively little research has been carried out into the links between self-employment and family life. This report considers, for the first time, the extent to which new family-friendly initiatives and legislation provide adequate support for self-employed parents. Drawing on an analysis of survey material from 10,000 families with children, the report explores topical issues such as: whether self-employment offers working parents greater flexibility than other forms of employment the price of flexibility difficulties in relation to childcare differences between the experiences of self-employed mothers and fathers

This book presents the current state-of-the-art in all major and upcoming areas of entrepreneurship research. Thousands of scholars around the world are currently working to broaden our understanding of the entrepreneurial phenomenon. The disciplines involved are numerous, as are the topics of interest, with substantial efforts to enhance the existing knowledge. This book is specifically designed to facilitate high-level, high-intensity discussions and fruitful exchanges between scholars involved in entrepreneurship research. The articles address a variety of topics ranging from self-employment, technology, growth patterns and job creation, and success and failure rates, to historical, conceptual and comparative international approaches. “This book takes entrepreneurship beyond the individual, size of the venture, entrepreneurial personality, and looks at entrepreneurship as a long term complex process that is heterogeneous, content dependent with an emphasis on innovation and growth. A must read for individuals interested in entrepreneurship, today and in the future, on a domestic and global basis.” – Robert D. Hisrich, Director – Walker Center and Garvin Professor of Global Entrepreneurship, Thunderbird School of Global Management “Entrepreneurship is perhaps not just the most multifaceted but also the most important concept of the modern socio-economic disciplines. This book makes an invaluable contribution in this fascinating area: it presents a multifaceted socio-economic examination of the impact of entrepreneurship for growth.” – Roy Thurik, Erasmus School of Economics in Rotterdam and Montpellier Business School

Unternehmensgründung und selbstständige Erwerbstätigkeit eröffnen nicht nur Erfolgschancen, sondern bringen erhebliche Prekaritätsrisiken mit sich. Auf der Grundlage konzeptioneller Überlegungen und neuerer empirischer Befunde verknüpft der Band zwei aktuelle, aber bisher kaum im Zusammenhang betrachtete gesellschaftliche Entwicklungen: die zunehmende Bedeutung von Unternehmertum und die wachsende Gefahr der Prekarisierung der Erwerbsarbeit.

In der Forschung über Selbständigkeit und Existenzgründungen dominieren bislang vor allem betriebswirtschaftliche Perspektiven. Sehr viel seltener stehen sozialwissenschaftliche Zugänge im Zentrum – obwohl die Selbständigkeit eine Vielzahl von Problemen aufwirft, die im Fokus der Sozialwissenschaften stehen: Aspekte der Vereinbarkeit von Beruf und Familie, der Work-Life-Balance und der sozialen Sicherung sind hier in besonderer Weise berührt, ebenso Fragen nach Geschlechterdifferenzen im Gründungsgeschehen sowie bei Branchen- und Einkommensentwicklungen. Nicht zuletzt stellt der Start in die Selbständigkeit meist einen tiefen biografischen Einschnitt dar, der die Lebenslauf- und Berufsverlaufsforschung herausfordert. Dieser Band zielt darauf ab, einer sozialwissenschaftlichen Selbständigkeitsforschung neue Impulse zu verleihen, indem er eine breite Auswahl von Themen, theoretischen und empirischen Zugängen, auch historischen und internationalen Perspektiven versammelt. Die Beiträge werfen dabei vor allem auch Licht auf den tiefgreifenden Wandel und die wachsende Heterogenität von Selbständigkeit, sichtbar z.B. in der Zunahme der Solo-Selbständigkeit und der Altersstreuung bei Gründer/inne/n.

Gender And Family In East Asia

The on-going reconfiguration of geo-political and economic forces across the globe has created a new institutional and moral environment for East Asian family life and gender dynamics. Indeed, modernisation in East Asia has brought about increases in women’s education levels and participation in the labour force, a delay in marriage age, lower birth rates, and smaller family size. And yet, despite the process of modernization, traditional systems such as Confucianism and patriarchal rules, continue to shape gender politics and family relationships in East Asia. This book examines gender politics and family culture in East Asia in light of both the overwhelming changes that modernization and globalization have brought to the region, and the structural restrictions that women in East Asian societies continue to face in their daily lives. Across three sections, the contributors to this volume focus on marriage and motherhood, religion and family, and migration. In doing so, they reveal how actions and decisions implemented by the state trigger changes in gender and family at the local level, the impact of increasing internal and transnational migration on East Asian culture, and how religion interweaves with the state in shaping gender dynamics and daily life within the family. With case studies from across the region, including South Korea, Japan, mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars of Asian studies, gender studies, anthropology, sociology and social policy.

This timely report considers how childcare services are meeting the needs of parents working atypical hours. Using information from a survey of Early Years Development and Childcare Partnerships in England, a survey of childcare providers from two local authorities and a number of case studies, the report addresses in particular what helps and what hinders the development of such services. It will be invaluable to policymakers, employers, academics and organisations with an interest in developing childcare services.
