Books By Author Jens Qvortrup
Modern Child and the Flexible Labour Market, Hardback (October 2011)
This book sheds light on new research related to welfare state, child care policies, and small children's everyday lives in institutions in Europe. In uniting recent social childhood research, welfare perspectives and historical and comparative approaches, the book explores institutionalization as a feature of the modern child's life.
Childhood, Generational Order and the Welfare State, Paperback (May 2007)View all books by Jens Qvortrup
The conceptual integration of children and childhood in the welfare state is an open question. This book tries to close this gap by offering the concept of generational order as theoretical tool to both childhood and welfare state research. It explores issues of children's social and economic welfare, such as child poverty.
