El rol de los hombres en la dinámica familiar desde una perspectiva internacional (Proyecto MenRoles)

In recent decades, the new social role of women, female educational advancement, and the gradual weakening of men in the labor market, exacerbated by the current financial and economic crisis, have strongly affected men’s identities and roles and their educational, labor, conjugal and reproductive trajectories. This project assesses, on the one hand, gender differences in demographic and family dynamics. We analyze the differences in family formation/dissolution (cohabitation, marriage, divorce) and fertility (delay, number of children, infertility) and its related characteristics between men and women, explaining what distinguishes their family and reproductive choices, preferences and behavior at the individual level. On the other hand, we study the relevance of gender (in)equality in such decisions, taking into account the contextual aspects of (in)equality.
