Title Work/non-work oriented cities from a boundary management perspective

English abstract
Attaining work-life balance is one of most important needs for the 21st century global population. Traditionally, the work-life issues have been mostly treated from a sociologic perspective and from a business/HR perspective. Whereas in the first one the roles of societal values and social structures have been related with individuals' work-life balance, in the second one the roles of the employing organisations in enabling individuals to reach a balance have been discussed. Even if not visible on the research agenda, work-life issues also belong to "urban studies". This research bridges work-life studies with urban studies because individuals connects cities to their work/non-work equilibrium.
