Sažetak

The economic crisis has reshaped the lives of millions of European citizens. But how has it affected families with children? Children are more at risk of poverty or social exclusion than the overall population in a large majority of EU countries; hence, it is important to understand how the crisis has affected the households in which these children grow up. This report describes the changing quality of life across the EU for different types of families with children and compares their living standards and social situation. Grouping the EU Member States into four categories on the basis of the flexibility or otherwise of their family policies, it also examines potential patterns that may be related to different family policy approaches. Themes that emerge from the findings include the particular challenges facing lone parents, the greater difficulties facing jobless families since the onset of the crisis, and the increasing extent of conflict parents experience in seeking to balance their work and family lives.

    Kvaliteta života u Europi: Obitelji u gospodarskoj krizi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Gospodarska kriza preoblikovala je živote milijuna građana diljem Europe. No, kako je kriza utjecala na obitelji s djecom? U većini zemalja djeca su izloženija riziku od siromaštva ili društvene isključenosti nego cjelokupno stanovništvo te je stoga važno razumjeti kako je kriza utjecala na kućanstva s djecom. Ovo izvješće opisuje promjenu u kvaliteti života diljem EU-a za različite vrste obitelji s djecom te uspoređuje njihove životne standarde i socijalno stanje. Svrstavanjem država članica EU-a u četiri kategorije na temelju njihove fleksibilnost ili njihovih obiteljskih politika istražuju se i potencijalni uzorci koji se mogu povezati s različitim pristupima obiteljskoj politici. Teme koje proizlaze iz rezultata uključuju određene izazove s kojima se suočavaju samohrani roditelji, veće poteškoće s kojima se susreću nezaposlene obitelji od početka krize te povećanu razinu nezadovoljstva koju doživljavaju roditelji koji žele uspostaviti ravnotežu između poslovnog i privatnog života.
