Contemporary Fathers in the UK: The Fatherhood Institute review of research on British dads

The Fatherhood Institute, supported by the Nuffield Foundation, has been compiling (and continues to compile) a literature library of mainly academic articles, book chapters and reports about fathers and fatherhood in the UK. 

This study is the most comprehensive review ever undertaken in Britain on decades of research into the roles of fathers in families. The study period is from 1998 to the present day; and, in order to be included, publications must draw on empirical research (UK samples) or describe or reflect on relevant research methodologies, or on UK policy or practice.

Drawing on these activities, The Fatherhood Institute are publishing a series of reports, Contemporary Fathers in the UK.  See here, for recently published reports in the series including Who’s the Bloke in the Room? Fathers during pregnancy and at the birth in the UK, Where’s the daddy? and Cash or carry: Fathers combining work and care in the UK.
