The presentation will address the ethics and policy of parenting. Some of the questions that I will explore are: who is a parent? How do people acquire responsibilities for children? How do the relationships between adults influence, or should influence, these responsibilities? What are (or might be) the implications of mothers and fathers equally sharing responsibilities for children? Who, if anyone, should be awarded precedence in cases of competition for parenting? In pondering these questions, I will comparatively look at the Swedish and the Romanian cases of the culture and policy of parenting. The two European countries are examples of quite different post-separation and post-divorce parenting. In Sweden, it is highly expected that, following separation of the parents, they will both continue to function as parents with equal rights and responsibilities. In Romania this is rare, and children are placed with one parent (usually the mother), with the other parent being awarded (at best) visitation rights, and (usually) financial responsibilities. Recent changes in legislation, and tendencies in European legislation, shift towards shared parenting – and this collides with long established beliefs and expectations, and will have a strong impact on children as well as their parents and society at large.
