Beskrivning av projektet
This interdisciplinary consortium study approaches coparenting as a key factor for family functioning and gender equality during the transition to parenthood. Following data sets will be collected: interview data of Finnish, Australian, Japanese and Portuguese parents (collected twice: late pregnancy, child 1.5 years), mobile diary data of Finnish parents (collected twice: child 4–6 months, child 1.5 years) and focus-group interview data of Finnish professionals and parents. The study is conducted by the University of Jyväskylä and JAMK University of Applied Sciences in close collaboration with the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) and international collaborators. This study will contribute new knowledge on the construction of coparenting and reveal how coparenting is shaped by welfare policies, family services and cultural expectations and norms. The study will also deepen knowledge about role of professional and peer support in construction of coparenting.
