Modernisation Processes of Society have an impact on the Variety of the European Family in a seemingly contradicting manner: While ideas and forms of the family appear to diverge, demographic and legal backgrounds seem to converge.

During the conference, thematically focussed sessions will bring together well-known social scientists with political and economical leaders to give room for discussion on the causes, manifestation and social consequences of the current development.

The interdisciplinary sessions will focus on following topics: Images of Family, Gender Roles in the Family, Globalisation and Challenges for the Family and Development and Dynamics of the Family in Europe.

In providing such a multidisciplinary platform for European Family Science, the organizers continue the conference tradition established in the 1990s. The aim is to initiate more research to be undertaken in the future and hence to participate in the future outline of societal frameworks that are crucial for the European family.
