The upcoming international seminar of the Committee on Family Research is organized by FaPOS (Family and Population Studies), and it will be held on the 12-14 September 2012 at K.U.Leuven, Belgium.

The theme of the seminar is:

New Family Forms following Family Dissolution: Consequences in/on Postmodern Society

This seminar focuses on the intertwined transitions in demographic regimes and family structures the past three decades. These transitions are both cause and consequence of the dramatic increase in family dissolution, and subsequently on new re-partnering patterns and processes. The aim of the CFR-seminar 2012 is to shed light on the specific dimensions of these changes and the mechanisms behind them. For possible themes, please check the call for abstracts here.
