Abstract:

Family formation and fertility in practically all European countries has been subject to dramatic changes over the last 20 years. What are the attitudes of Europeans towards current demographic trends? Are new values, goals in life, and everyday needs still compatible with raising children? What policies might influence current population trends? Based on a comparative survey of nine European countries (Austria, Belgium, former Czechoslovakia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland), this volume provides a new perspective on the impact of population-related social policies by linking them to emerging values, attitudes, and norms in the field of family formation and parenthood. The analysis demonstrates that common trends like the decline in fertility do not imply a convergence of values and lifestyles, nor the presence of similar social pressures.

The impact of social policies is related to the phase of the family cycle, the social and economic situation of the couple, as well as emerging values and norms with respect to family and parenthood in a specific national context. This book argues for the revision of the assumption that generally observed demographic trends all have similar causes and ask for similar policies. It will be an indispensable reference tool for both researchers and policy-makers.
