Discussion Paper No. 5: Family Diversity and its Challenges for Policy Makers in Europe (2017)
The aim of this discussion paper is to provide up-to-date empirical evidence and policy recommendations related to family issues in Europe. The content presented is based on the main findings of the large-scale EU Seventh Framework project - "Changing families and sustainable societies: Policy contexts and diversity over the life course and across generations" (FamiliesAndSocieties). From February 2013 until January 2017, the consortium brought together a total of 25 leading universities and research institutes from 15 European countries, three transnational civil society actors and a large number of national and international stakeholders. The general coordination of the project was carried out at Stockholm University by project coordinator Associate Professor Livia Sz. Oláh, who was assisted by a management team comprised of Professor Gunnar Andersson and Associate Professor Gerda Neyer.
