Book Description: This work asks if we are observing a cultural change leading to the dissolution of the family, as we see marriage declining, divorce rising, fertility dropping and children born to single mothers increasing. However, it suggests, we may merely be seeing a shift from marriage to cohabitation.

Book Description: European policymakers are attempting to develop immigration policies that meet economic needs and promote greater competitiveness and growth —without undermining the social models so valued by their electorates. To succeed, they must take into account aging populations, high and persistent levels of overall unemployment, even higher levels of unemployment among immigrants and ethnic minorities, and sector- and location-specific labor mismatches and shortfalls. Europe and Its Immigrants in the 21st Century examines many of the critical issues facing European economies and societies with regard to immigration. The authors juxtapose these issues with those facing the "traditional countries of immigration" (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States) and offers policy recommendations to address them. Among other topics, this book examines options for immigrant selection and managing all forms of migration better (including "irregular" migration), and offers recommendations for immigrant and minority integration policies at the EU, national, and local levels - where most integration work takes place. Contributors include Wolfgang Lutz (Vienna Institute for Demography), Klaus Zimmerman (Institute for the Study of Labor/DIW, Berlin), Louka Katseli (OECD), Grete Brochman (Institute for Social Research, University of Oslo), Heaven Crawley (AMRE Consulting), Demetrios G. Papademetriou (Migration Policy Institute), Sarah Spencer (COMPAS, University of Oxford), Brian Ray (University of Ottawa), Rinus Pennix (University of Amsterdam), Jorge Gaspar (University of Lisbon), Lucinda Fonseca (Centro de Estudos Geográficos), Kathleen Newland (Migration Policy Institute), Doris Meissner (Migration Policy Institute), T.

Book Description: With the creation of the European Union and the break-up of the former Soviet Union, the last few years have witnessed great ferment in European political and social change. In the European Union, convergence in economic arrangements might be expected to lead to greater demographic similarity between member states - but the reverse seems to be the case. By contrast, the distinctive demographic features established in Eastern Europe under communism are becoming less apparent as the population adjusts to new political and economic regimes. This book presents an up-to-date picture of Europe's population - East and West - with nine papers by internationally known authors covering all its major aspects. An introductory chapter by the editor describes the variety of birth rates in Europe's populations, from the astonishingly low birth rates in the Mediterranean countries to the growing birth rates of Scandinavia. Other chapters compare European trends in immigration, mortality, and family formation and dissolution, fully supported by numerous figures and tables. The remaining chapters consider some of the causes and consequences of these trends: the extent to which changes in family formation and living arrangements are affected by economic pressures or by the spread of new values; the influence of family policy on the birth rate; the consequences of demographic change in the ageing of Europe's population and its numerical stagnation and possible future decline.
