Families and Societies

About (English version): 
What will families look like in the future? Are existing social- and family policies compatible with changes in family patterns? These and related questions are addressed in the large-scale integrating project FamiliesAndSocieties – Changing families and sustainable societies: Policy contexts and diversity over the life course and across generations, coordinated by Stockholm University. The collaborative research project is financed in the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (€6.5 millions in EU contribution; grant no. 320116). Launched in February 1, 2013 it will continue until January 31, 2017. The main objectives of the project are: To investigate the diversity of family forms, relationships,and life courses in Europe. To assess the compatibility of existing policies with family changes. To contribute to evidence-based policy-making. The project will extend the knowledge on how policies promote well-being, inclusion and sustainable societal development among families.
