Fields of knowledge: Ökonomie, Demographie, Politik

The scientific work focuses on the analysis of the causes of population decline, the presentation of future challenges, especially in the labour market, and the development of political recommendations for action. Firstly, the state institutions that form the framework for individual decisions on family formation, labour market participation, distribution of tasks within the family, etc. are examined. Secondly, family factors influencing the human capital formation (education and health) of children are analysed, and thirdly, the impact of personnel policy instruments on a better compatibility of family and career is investigated.
