The author also comments on the interview with D’Ancona and Bussemaker. He enumerates the similarities between them: their enthusiasm and their struggles to ‘frame’ the problem of emancipation in a correct way. Both make a distinction between the substance and the process of emancipation policy, making it all the more surprising, he argues, that so little has been done in the past years to establish new institutions and to generate continuity. Lack of consensus between political parties about the way forward has generated an incremental way of policy making, resulting in a patchwork of regulations, which are often very confusing to the public. Schippers, furthermore, draws attention to the differences between the interviewees in view of the work/care problem – sharing between partners or stimulating the commercialisation of care work.
