Work Autonomy, Flexibility and Work-Life Balance (WAF Project) is a European research project of the University of Kent. COFACE Families Europe is part of the Policy advisory Board since 2014, together with representatives of the SocialPartners, ILO and Eurofound.

This project aims to examine how work autonomy and working-time flexibility (flexitime) is being used and provided, and how it can be used to benefit workers rather than to lead to increased intensification of work and blurring boundaries between work and family life.

More findings and a number of opinion and reflection pieces can be found on the project’s blog: http://wafproject.org/blog
