Excerpted from abstract:
This lively, informative and well attended one-day conference was jointly organized by Rianne Mahon of the Institute of Political Economy, Carleton University and the Family Network of Canadian Policy Research Networks (CPRN). The day was divided into two sessions. In the morning, presentations focused on national child care policies in Europe and Japan. The afternoon session considered North American child care policies, with presentations on Canada, Quebec, Manitoba, and the United States. This report consists of two main sections and appendices. Section 1 provides a brief overview of the major themes that emerged from the presentations, while Section 2 contains abstracts of each of the presentations.
