In this blog we aim to create a space to share news, summarize relevant discussions from our meetings, and document what is happening the Family Policy Group. If you have something to share – an interesting policy paper, conference submission deadlines, grant opportunities, etc., please contact David Rothwell.

The Family Policy Group conducts research on policy analysis (i.e., impacts of policies) and policy processes related to the following:

  • Child care
  • Family inequalities
  • Family poverty and the safety net
  • Family processes, relationships, and family stress and mental health
  • Parent education and parenting practices
  • Work-family fit (i.e., integrating work and care giving roles)
