Population Europe Inter-Faces: Michaela Kreyenfeld

An interview with Michaela Kreyenfeld (Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research) on fatherhood.


1. My former partner and I split up some years ago, but I am still very involved in the upbringing of our child. However, I often feel that separated fathers have quite a bad image – what is the reality in Europe?

2. What are the main factors that influence the level of contact a father has after a separation?

3. To what extent can policies and legal frameworks influence the behaviour of fathers?

4. How likely is it that separated fathers will have more children with a new partner?
