Assessing and Monitoring Family Policy

DSPI Principal Investigator: Professor Mary Daly
Funded by: John Fell OUP Fund

The objective of the project, funded by the John Fell Fund, is to undertake a state of the art interdisciplinary review of both data availability on family policy in an international comparative context. The project also seeks to amass and organise evidence on key policy developments within and across countries, track and evaluate indicators and data for these developments, and develop the foundations for a comprehensive and up-to-date indicator/data set (template) on family policy and its development. The overall aim is to update thinking and practice on how to define, conceptualise and measure family policy and to put together, with the UK as a case study, a more up-to-date set of indicators and an appropriately complex way of conceptualising the field.
