Abstract

This publication contains the final report of the project "Changing Family Structure and Social Policy: Childcare Services in Europe and Social Cohesion", whose work has primarily contributed to the area "Social trends and structural changes".
The report contains information about the main scientific findings of this project and their policy implications. The research was carried out by 6 teams over a period of 3 and a half years, starting in February 2000.
The research concerned the empirical analysis of caring and other services for young children. The overall aim was to examine comparatively in eight European countries how relationships were constructed in three areas: the changing balance between public administration and the market economy; the far-reaching changes occurring in family structures; and the social and community forces that are setting up third-sector organizations designed to respond to the new demands on families.
The abstract and executive summary presented in this edition offer to the reader the opportunity to have an overview of the main scientific and policy conclusions, before the main body of the research provided in the other chapters of this report.
