The well-being of children: the impact of changing family forms, working conditions of parents, social policy and legislative measures

The well-being of children: the impact of changing family forms, working conditions of parents, social policy and legislative measures

Objective

The purpose of this CA is to set up and operate a network to improve our knowledge of the impact of changing family forms, the working conditions of parents, and social policy and legislative measures on the well-being of children and their families. Its g oal is to bring into focus, co-ordinate, channel and publicise the results of research that has already been carried out through the organisation of international workshops and conferences. These events will bring together a number of professionals from di fferent specialist areas in this field, in order to debate and compare their research and experiences, to tackle the ways in which different kinds of public policy and legal reform can ameliorate the conditions of children and to explore the best strategie s for the exploitation and dissemination of relevant research to wider audiences. Debates will hinge on the extent to which marital instability and other processes of family transformation, in contemporary Europe and in the context of different institution al and policy arrangements, can affect the welfare of children and lead to divergences in outcomes. Considering that the eradication of child poverty is a precondition for the future of a society based on social cohesion, this CA will contribute to the obj ectives of the priority thematic area 7, particularly addressing some of the topics included in Research Area 2 such as such as the analysis of the close connections between the accumulation of socio-economic risks, current and past inequalities, quality o f life and access to services and the understanding of the causes of the intergenerational inheritance of inequalities. It is expected that different kinds of synergies will follow:1) Integration and exploitation of knowledge derived from previous research ; 2) Exploration of new lines of research; 3) Avoidance of national fragmentation of research; 4) Statistical harmonisation; 5) Strengthening and integration of the European Research Area.
