Families today are far more diverse than they were ten or twenty years ago – these developments have to be kept in mind by policymakers.

In eight trends, this book examines how family life in Germany has changed and outlines the consequences for the growing-up of children. The analysis highlights that family policy has not kept up with various developments and should be reassessed taking on a child's perspective. A free summary in English is now available.
