Since the introduction of the "Family 500+" programme, fears were raised that the programme would likely decrease the economic activity of mothers, which is already lower than that of fathers and women without children. The latest research on the actual impact of the programme on the mothers’ economic activity were presented during the seminar.
We published the presentations:
- Michał Myck (CenEA) - Modelling labour supply in Poland: elasticity estimates and policy simulations
- Iga Magda (IBS, SGH) - Family 500+ benefit and womens' labour market participation
- Matteo Morgandi (The World Bank) - Can mothers afford to work in Poland?
and the summary of the panel discussion entitled "If, why and how to increase women’s labour market activity?" (see the seminar website). Panel discussion chaired by Grzegorz Osiecki (Dziennik Gazeta Prawna) was participated by: Lech Antkowiak (Warsaw Labour Office), Anna Karaszewska (Jobs First), Paweł Kubicki (Warsaw School of Economics – SGH) and Barbara Surdykowska (The Independent and Self-Governing Trade Union „Solidarność”).
