This volume brings together contributors from nineteen countries across Europe, Asia, and the Americas to provide international perspectives on paid parental leave. The first section looks at recent developments in leave policy in eight countries, from Poland to China, paying particular attention to the politics of leave policy, including what drives and impedes change. The second section examines a number of current issues in leave policy, including flexibility in policy design, gender equality including fathers’ usage, and relationships between leave and related policy fields. The final section looks ahead to possible future directions for leave policy.
