Improving childcare policies in the CEE/CIS region

This project maps the legislative, policy and fiscal framework for public support for parents and childcare and identifies policy options in the CEE/CIS region. Based on this information and the available research evidence, the project will also model the effects of selected policies on access to childcare, access to employment (male and female), and if possible, household and child poverty and the public budget.
