Description

The 7th Congress of the European Society on Family Relations (ESFR) Several European countries are in the midst of a profound economic crisis which has sharply impacted families. The ongoing high rates of unemployment, have not only reduced families’ standard of living but it has also contributed to changes in several areas of family life. The negative consequences of the economic crisis may be reinforced by cutbacks in social spending and changes in public policies priorities. A multidisciplinary perspective is needed to gain better insights into how families are affected and which factors are likely to have the greatest impact in helping families to cope with these challenges. We invite the scientific community to present symposiums and papers on a range of contemporary issues that families face including, but not limited to, the current economic crisis. We welcome papers on innovative research on a wide range of topics from disciplines such as Psychology, Sociology, Economics, Anthropology, Demography, Social Work, Education, Political Science, Legal Studies and History. The conference will highlight the latest research findings and will address topics that are of interest to researchers and those active in different fields of application.
