Suomiareena: Immigrant women as parents and as taxpayers – what is true and what is false?
Employment and parenting can be combined according to the Nordic welfare state model. How does the model work for women coming from different cultures and which myths surround the topic?
Do we need immigration to solve the crises of our aging society? Do the women tend to become employed or do they stay at home taking care of children and the elderly? What ways do we have for truly combining parenting and employment? Welcome to a conversation about social integration, birth rate and employment.
