2015/05 How we can conciliation between work and family life become a reality?

In 2014, we prioritized efforts to identify concrete measures to promote conciliation between work and family life at EU and national level. Mothers have expressed increased worries with the challenges they face in balancing both. As part of an alliance initiated by COFACE (the Confederations of Family organizations in the EU), MMM actively contributed to the European Reconciliation Package (ERP).

This project highlights the different policies and practices developed at both local and national levels that can support families. It also presents recommendations of actions that can be taken at EU and national levels to empower families, and ultimately promote equal pay, increased employment, improved childcare and care infrastructure and better overall well-being.

The European Reconciliation Package analyses 4 main areas: reconcilation for family caregivers, reconciliation for women at work, childcare solutions and education. For each issue, a legislative and political background outlines the current situation and offers recommendations as well as a number of existing practices in Europe. MMM contribution focused on:

1.      Stressing the demand of European mothers for flexible working arrangements and the validation of informal skills acquired in the family context and

2.      Promoting the use in companies of the EFR Certificate - a private management tool to assess how family-friendly internal policies are.

Besides English, it is also available in French, Spanish and Italian and we hope it will inspire policy makers, employers, legislators etc in improving the working conditions, legal environment and care solutions for families in Europe.


You will find in this report, the activities of our teams at the UN, UNESCO and the European Union. MMM makes the voices of mothers heard in order to identify concrete measures to support them worldwide.
The theme "Women and the Economy" is a crucial one showing how important it is to empower women and the benefits for the whole society.
We also work on maternal and child health and how mothers promote peace in their communities.
