Study on TRansition and Exclusion in Society of Single-Mums

Project description

A judicial look at lone motherhood

Single parent families – the vast majority headed by women – are becoming increasingly common in the European Union. They also face greater risks of poverty. As such, single parents need resources, employment and social support. The EU-funded STRESS-Mums project focuses on the judicial transition from double parenthood to lone motherhood and what this means for related issues such as child custody. Undertaking a method of sociological research in institutional ethnography, project researchers will collect interviews in Belgium, Italy and Spain to review gender citizenship related strategies and problems for deeper insight into single-parenting issues.
