The International Leave network
The International Leave network has just published its latest edition on parental leaves around the world on this site: http://www.leavenetwork.org.
Bernard Fusulier (Belgium) and Diane-Gabrielle Tremblay (Québec-Canada: http://www.leavenetwork.org/fileadmin/Leavenetwork/Country_notes/canada_28042011l.pdf) participate in this network which meets once a year. This year, they meet in Iceland, in September. Iceland has a very interesting parental leave, with 3 months reserved for the father, 3 for the mother, and 3 that can be shared. Norway has also just passed to 3 months reserved for the father. And Australia has just introduced a universal parental leave system, so that the USA are now the only country not to have such a universal parental leave.
