MMM has been a partner in a project initiated by the Research DG of the European Commission. Its aim was to make an up-to-date inventory and evaluation of family research in the 27 member states.
Research platform on families and family policies:
The final report, released in the spring of 2011, identifies key research topics whose results will serve as a basis for developing new European policies that impact families.
He answers the question: “How can European policies and those of the Member States improve the well-being of families in the long term? ”
It was a wonderful opportunity to make the voices of mothers heard at the European level and to have a real impact on future European policies that affect families.
Among other tasks, MMM Europe has been given a report on the situation of mothers in Europe, their reality, their priorities, their difficulties and their needs. As part of the development of this report, MMM Europe launched “The Mothers’ Survey in Europe” to speak with confidence and truth on behalf of mothers in Europe.
This report written in the framework of the Family Platform describes the profiles and the functioning of three civil organizations involved in the project, including MMM.
This report corresponds to one of the requests of the European Commission within the framework of the Family Platform and was made jointly with the University of Vienna. These are scenarios of the future involving families in 2035. The aim is to derive key political questions that could encourage or hinder the well-being of families in Europe.
This report presents another task for MMM Europe in the Family Platform project. This is an aggregation of articles written by researchers and representatives of civil society in Europe (as well as an article by US representative) on the subject of volunteering and families, especially since 2011 is the European Year of Volunteering.
This final report summarizes the work done in the first Work Package of the Family Platform. It was prepared and edited by Marjo Kuronen of the Family Research Center (University of Jyväskylä) in Finland.
