Confronting family poverty and social exclusion
Aimed to examine family oriented policies and strategies concerning poverty, work-family balance, social integration, and intergenerational solidarity.
This expert group meeting is titled “Confronting family poverty and social exclusion, ensuring work-family balance and advancing social integration and intergenerational solidarity in Europe”
The preparations for the anniversary focused on reviewing family-oriented policies and strategies aiming mainly at confronting family poverty; ensuring work-family balance and advancing social integration and intergenerational solidarity. The preparatory process is to accelerate progress in family policy development; demonstrate its relevance for overall development efforts, and draw attention to the role of member states and other stakeholders in achieving these goals.
The approaching anniversary offers an opportunity to share good practices in family policy-making and use successful policies and programmes as benchmarks that can be adapted to local norms and socioeconomic conditions in different countries.
