Kopsavilkums

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.

    Dzīves kvalitāte Eiropā — ekonomikas krīzes ietekme uz ģimenēm

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Ekonomikas krīze ir izmainījusi dzīvi miljoniem Eiropas pilsoņu. Bet kā tā ir ietekmējusi ģimenes ar bērniem? Lielākajā daļā ES valstu bērni ir vairāk pakļauti nabadzības un sociālās atstumtības riskam nekā iedzīvotāji kopumā, tāpēc ir svarīgi saprast, kā krīze ir ietekmējusi mājsaimniecības, kurās šie bērni aug. Šajā ziņojumā ir aprakstīta mainīgā dzīves kvalitāte ES dažādu modeļu ģimenēs ar bērniem un salīdzināts ģimeņu dzīves līmenis un sociālais stāvoklis. Iedalot ES dalībvalstis četrās kategorijās atkarībā no to ģimenes politikas elastīguma pakāpes, pētījumā ir analizēti arī potenciālie modeļi, kas varētu būt saistīti ar dažādām ģimenes politikas pieejām. Tēmas, kas izriet no secinājumiem, ietver īpašās problēmas, ar kurām saskaras vientuļie vecāki, lielākās grūtības, ar kurām kopš krīzes sākuma sastopas ģimenes, kas zaudējušas darbu, un arvien pieaugošo konfliktu, ko izjūt vecāki, cenšoties līdzsvarot darbu un ģimenes dzīvi.
