What family (ies), for what society (ies) in today's Europe?
European Union - 26/03/2021
The Joseph Károlyi Foundation is organising an international conference on the topic of family in a European context. The Robert Schuman Foundation is one of the partner organisations of this online event.

The Joseph Károlyi Foundation is organising an international conference as part of the Month of the Francophonie, with the support of the Robert Schuman Foundation, the Embassies of France, Switzerland, Italy and the Czech Republic, the French and Italian Cultural Institutes, the Polish Institute, the Austrian Kultur Forum and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Budapest.

"Family" is a very passionate subject in contemporary European societies in which approaches differ considerably from North to South and from East to West. The effects of the health crisis of 2020 on society have even stimulated reflection on the subject.

The aim of the conference is to present, in a comparative philosophical, legal, sociological, demographic, religious, political and economic approach, the evolution - and not the "crisis" - of the notion of "family" as experienced by societies and to answer the questions: what does family mean and what is its purpose today? are there any alternatives? what are the objectives of government family policy? Does it have limits?

Approaches in more than nine countries reveal the differences and their reasons as well as the need for citizens/individuals to clarify their understanding of the foundations of their identity.
