Diese Fragestellung beinhaltet verschiedene Ebenen der Betrachtung. Die erste Ebene ist die polity-Ebene, in der die institutionellen Regelungen zur Familienpolitik in Schweden und Deutschland hinsichtlich der Etablierung des so genannten ‚Doppelversorgermodelles‘ betrachtet werden sollen. Die zweite Ebene bezieht mit der Rollenproblematik auf der poltics-Ebene den gender-Konflikt als theoretisches Konstrukt zur Beantwortung der Fragestellung mit ein. Dabei wirft sie eine weitere interessante Fragestellung auf: Woran liegt es, dass familienpolitische Regelungen in Schweden anders angenommen werden als in Deutschland? Schwerpunkt der Untersuchung ist dabei die politics-Ebene, die auf unterschiedliche geschlechtliche Rollenverständnisse in den beiden Staaten geprüft werden soll.
