First FamiliesAndSocieties Stakeholder Seminar
A poor socioeconomic background and family disruptions, such as parent separation, may have an impact on the life chances of children. But so far, empirical evidence is quite scarce. What are the consequences of parental separation for the future of children? And to what extent can policy interventions prevent adverse consequences associated with it? These were the main questions discussed at the first FamiliesAndSocieties Stakeholder Seminar in Brussels. The event was chaired by Fabrizio Bernardi from the European University Institute. [...]
It is well-known that family configurations have become more and more diverse over the last decades. Single-parent families, cohabiting families of the opposite or same sex, and intergenerational households are only examples of the current diversity. In Europe, family structures still vary substantially among countries. For instance, in 2011 the number of live births outside marriage ranged from 7.4% in Greece to 65% in Iceland. However, trends over time have substantially increased everywhere. [...]

Researchers Steffen Reinhold, Thorsten Kneip and Gerrit Bauer focused on a much more detailed question instead: How are the effects of unilateral divorce laws affecting the well-being of children? [...]
Les lois sur le divorce et leurs effets sur le bien-être de l’enfant
Dans quelle mesure les enfants souffrent-ils du divorce de leurs parents ? Cette question n’est pas facile à répondre et ceci provient en partie de la complexité du sujet. Les chercheurs Steffen Reinhold, Thorsten Kneip et Gerrit Bauer se sont focalisés sur une question bien plus détaillée : comment les lois sur le divorce sur demande unilatérale affectent-elles le bien-être des enfants ? [...]
Les conséquences à long terme du divorce et la probabilité d’obtenir un diplôme universitaire
La séparation des parents pourrait-elle affecter les chances de l’enfant d’obtenir un diplôme universitaire ? En étudiant le divorce dans quatorze pays (Australie, Autriche, Belgique, Bulgarie, Estonie, France, Géorgie, Hongrie, Italie, Lituanie, Norvège, Pays-Bas, Roumanie et Russie), Fabrizio Bernardi et Jonas Radl ont étudié les conséquences à long terme du divorce sur la scolarité de l’enfant et ont découvert un effet négatif, bien que relativement faible, sur la réussite scolaire.
