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.

    Quality of life in Europe: Families in the economic crisis

    The economic crisis has reshaped the lives of millions of European citizens. But how has it affected families with children?

    Jakość życia w Europie – rodziny w dobie kryzysu gospodarczego

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Kryzys gospodarczy zmienił życie milionów europejskich obywateli. A jak kryzys gospodarczy wpłynął na rodziny z dziećmi? W znacznej większości państw UE w przypadku dzieci ryzyko ubóstwa lub wykluczenia społecznego jest większe niż dla ogółu społeczeństwa, w związku z czym istotne jest, aby zrozumieć wpływ kryzysu na gospodarstwa domowe, w których dorastają dzieci. W sprawozdaniu przedstawiono zmieniającą się jakość życia w UE dla różnych rodzajów rodzin z dziećmi i porównano ich stopę życiową i sytuację społeczną. Dzieląc państwa członkowskie UE na cztery kategorie na podstawie elastyczności lub innych właściwości ich polityki rodzinnej, w sprawozdaniu przeanalizowano również różne modele, które mogą wiązać się z różnymi podejściami w ramach polityki rodzinnej. Zagadnienia, które pojawiają się w ustaleniach, obejmują szczególne wyzwania, z którymi borykają się samotni rodzice, większe trudności rodzin, w których żadna osoba nie pracuje od początku kryzysu, a także coraz większą trudność rodziców w godzeniu życia zawodowego z życiem rodzinnym.
