In this article we address the fi lial obligations espoused by people in the Netherlands, a country with well-developed systems of public care, where there is a clear expectation that the state should provide care for ageing family members (Daatland et al., 2009) and where cultural norms tend to be individualistic rather than familialistic (Kalmijn and Saraceno, 2008). Given both the generous welfare state arrangements and dominance of individualistic values, the Netherlands offers a highly interesting context for examining variations in fi lial obligations. The data are from the fi rst wave of the Netherlands Kinship Panel Study (NKPS), the Dutch participant in the Generations and Gender Programme (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, 2007).
