Family solidarity in a rapidly changing society – Psychological perspectives

Time: Friday, 14 July, 9:00-10:30

Chair: Dieter Ferring, University of Luxembourg, Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg
Rapid political and social changes in a globalised world characterise the challenges of European societies. The notion of family solidarity is of a high importance in ageing populations that demand increasing investments in health and care provision in many European societies. This symposium – linked to a COST Action on Intergenerational Family Solidarity across Europe (InterFaSol) – highlights family solidarity out of the perspective of different theoretical approaches and offers empirical findings from four European countries.
