Policy implications of changing family formation (Population studies No. 49)

Policy implications of changing family formation (Population studies No. 49)

Modern European societies are witnessing a number of key changes in family structures, such as postponed parenthood, low fertility, single parenting and increased divorce rates. As a consequence of the radical changes taking place in our societies, family policies often result in a complex set of targeted and sometimes contradictory measures and forms of public intervention. The three authors of this volume review the major demographic challenges posed by changing patterns in family and family formation and strive to identify possible policy responses by governments. They stress the need for all levels of government and the private sector to adopt an integrated and balanced approach to policy in order to create cohesive and family-friendly societies.This volume is a thematic compilation of the background papers on the policy implications of changing family formations prepared for the European Population Conference (Strasbourg, 7-8 April 2005)
