Summary / Abstract:

ENIn this chapter, we explore these harmonised data on social policies over time to describe how policies support earner-carer and traditional-family models in Lithuania and Sweden. We use these cases to describe how measures of earner-carer and traditional-family support have been constructed, and compare the policy developments over time. We highlight areas of convergence and divergence in family policy in these two countries with very different histories. We introduce the logic behind the SPIN data in the next section, detailing which policies fit within the two measures and how they are calculated. We then describe the measures specifically as they refer to Lithuania and Sweden from 1995 to 2015, illustrating both how the measures reflect the policies and how support for earner-carer and traditional-family arrangements have shifted over time in the two cases. These developments in Lithuania and Sweden are then contextualised by locating them among other Baltic and Nordic countries for which these measures have been produced in the SPIN database. Finally, we discuss the convergences and divergences we observe in Lithuania’s and Sweden’s family policy development, both in relation to each other and in relation to Baltic and Nordic countries.
