  • Offers an international comparative analysis of surveys on demographic change based on some 34,000 interviews in 14 European countries
  • Analyzes future demographic trends and their consequences for the family, children, equal opportunities, and the aging of the population
  • Focuses on family and family change, value of children, fertility intentions, and work-family balance

This two-volume work presents social cohesion and demographic challenges that are associated with low birth rates and population ageing. It does so from the perspective of citizens and key policy actors. The work analyses peoples’ attitudes about demographic trends and expectations towards private networks and public policies. It places these in the societal context of national specificities in the fourteen countries and regards them as part of the dynamics of the European integration process.
Volume 1 focuses on research findings related to family issues. Its main topics are: attitudes towards family and family change, value of children, fertility intentions, and views on work-family-balance. Particular attention is given to the acceptance of and expectations about family-policies. Additionally, the reader finds methodological and theoretical chapters and learns about the background of the DIALOG project.
This book is the outcome of the DIALOG research project, funded by the European Commission under the 5th Framework Programme.
