Popis In the context of very low to extremely low fertility levels recorded by many developed countries during the past two decades, an ongoing debate about the causes that lay behind this trend has been conducted by scholars and policy makers. When studying the results coming from various studies working with data either at the aggregate or individual level, one important issue is worth to be noticed: a large number of existing analyses on the reproductive process is largely, if not entirely, based on female fertility data, while men are more or less absent in data gathering and analysis. The first part of the presentation deals with an overview of the existing theoretical perspectives and research studies where male fertility and reproductive behaviour are considered, and emphasizes the causes that stay behind the low interest in male fertility. Further on, we will present a study on men reproductive behaviour conducted in the Czech Republic at the end of 2011. Three topics were chosen to be presented based on the new data: (1) preferences for work and family from a male and female perspective, (2) baby longing in a cross-national comparison, and (3) men and their roles regarding sex, contraception and childbearing.
