Work-life conflict in Europe
Ireland's Yearbook of Education 2019-2020, pp. 330-333
The central idea in work-life conflict is that meeting demands in one domain makes it difficult to meet obligations in the other (Greenhaus & Beutell, 1985). While the terms work-life conflict and work-life balance are used interchangeably, the focus here is on work-life conflict, as it draws attention to the potential tensions and trade-offs involved in combining work and life.
