The future of European families in vulnerable situations.
This paper summarizes a report* based on the findings of the European Union 7th Framework project ‘FamiliesAndSocieties’. IFFD has been part of this project’s consortium. The goals of the project included the investigation of the diversity of family situations, relationships, and life courses in Europe and contributions to evidence-based future policy-making. One of the twelve work packages addressed possible futures of the families in Europe and its main objective was to inform policymakers about possible developments and their potential impact on family needs and family well-being in the long run.
