Poverty, work-family balance and intergenerational solidarity: Raise Awareness Meeting in Brussels

As it has been stated by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, "the twentieth anniversary of the International Year of the Family offers an opportunity to refocus on the role of families in devel-opment; take stock of recent trends in family policy development; share good practices in family policy making; review challenges faced by families worldwide and recommend solutions."

In response to this and other relevant General Assembly and Economic and Social Council resolutions, the Doha Inter-national Institute for Family Studies and Development and the International Federation for Family Development, together with the United Nations Focal Point on the Family, have organized several events in Brussels hosted by the EU Committee of the Regions.
