Using Behavioural Insights to encourage Co-Responsibility in Child Care

In Uruguay, there is a gap in the use of the official part-time leave benefit between mothers and fathers. This is mainly due to a lack of information about laws, perceptions about costs associated with taking leave, and social believes that for the care of babies fathers are less necessary than mothers. This project aims to use behavioural interventions to understand how effective communication can help address these barriers and help to design policies to reduce the gender gap in care leave.
