Während in Deutschland Familienpolitik bislang eher als Privatangelegenheit galt, in die der Staat sich so wenig wie möglich einmischen sollte, wurde das Elterngeld in Schweden bereits 1974 eingeführt.

Diese Kontraste in der Familienpolitik zwischen Schweden und Deutschland machen diese beiden Länder für Vergleich besonders interessant. Im Zentrum steht dabei die folgende Fragestellung: Inwiefern hat sich in der deutschen Familienpolitik bereits ein „Doppelversorgermodell“ nach schwedischem Vorbild etabliert, welche Bedeutung haben dabei unterschiedliche gesellschaftliche Rollenverständnisse?
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.

Dabei wirft sie eine weitere interessante Fragestellung auf: Woran liegt es, dass familienpolitische Regelungen in Schweden anders angenommen werden als in Deutschland?
