European Policy Brief: Intergenerational Linkages in the Family


This policy brief highlights recent research findings from the project "FamiliesAndSocieties" on the role of laws and policies in shaping gendered interdependencies in families; the way the "sandwich generation" (those who are likely to raise a child or a grandchild and care for parents at the same time) cares for older parents across countries; transfers in Europe from ageing parents to adult children and vice versa; and, the extent to which the financial crisis has affected intergenerational patterns of family support across households. The brief also presents suggestions for policy interventions that can be derived from the findings.
