Changing Family Life in Denmark

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This paper will discuss the relevance of individualization theory for family studies. I will draw on both qualitative and quantitative empirical data (n=16/10, N=1003/438) from a longitudinal study of continuity and change in Danish family life (Dencik, Jørgensen, & Sommer, 2008; Westerling, 2008, 2018). This comprises three waves of data production (2003/2004, 2014, 2018). I will outline the key tenants in the theoretical point of departure and present interview data as a way into the discussion about how individualization theory may inform empirical data analysis and better our understanding of contemporary family life.
