Dr Erika Kispeter

Research interests

I am interested in how women and men's working lives are shaped by the labour market, work organisations and the welfare state, focussing especially on work-family policies and class inequalities. I use mixed methods in my research, ranging from case studies based on qualitative interviewing and participant observation to large-scale surveys.

Academic profile

I have a background in Gender Studies and joined IER in September 2015. Prior to this I worked at the Centre for International Research on Care, Labour and Equalities at the University of Leeds and as a doctoral researcher at the Central European University in Budapest. I was involved in projects investigating:

  • The role of gendered discourses and practices in eliciting workers’ commitment to the organisation (Central European University);
  • The impact of local welfare systems on women's labour force participation and social cohesion (EU, Seventh Framework Programme);
  • The labour market effects of the extended parental leave in Hungary (Hungarian Science Research Fund);
  • The quality of gender equality policies in a comparative European perspective (EU, Sixth Framework Programme).
