CEE Family

Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) Family

Introduction

During the period 2013-2015, Associate Professor Stuart Gietel-Basten and Associate Member Tomas Frejka worked with collaborators across Europe to develop a comprehensive view of the prospects for fertility increase in the former Socialist Countries of Central and Eastern Europe. 

Further details of the project can be found here.

A full paper describing the findings of the project is currently under review.

On this page, we will be providing supplemental information to the paper, including earlier iterations as well as country-level documents outlining recent trends in fertility and family policy.
