Men and Fatherhood: New Forms of Masculinity in Europe

Within the framework of the European Commission project ”Modern Men in Enlarged Europe: Developing Innovative Gender Equality Strategies,” largely financed by the European Commission, Danish, Icelandic, Lithuanian and Maltese scholars have completed a comprehensive research on masculinity and fatherhood. Focusing on paternity leave, they have examined the changes in traditional fatherhood in these countries. Most articles except one in this collection have been written in the context of this project.
