The spirit of this conference is to work together on the interactions between social policies, demographic change and the transformation of family systems. Our goal is mostly to create space and time for demographers, sociologists, anthropologists and social policy specialists to exchange and discuss recent research findings. Our perspective is resolutely international, we intend to overcome north/south divides to question the way States and families manage solidarity issues in various economic and demographic settings. We expect paper presentations to shed light on the links between population structure, public policies and private solidarities in a systemic approach, at different scales. The programme for the two days of conference is built upon panels with case studies presentations as well as round-tables focusing on transversal issues.
