Global Family Change
A few weeks ago Hans-Peter Kohler (PI) and Frank Furstenberg (Co-PI) embarked on a journey to better understand the complex ways in which families are changing across the world. Global Family Change (GFC) is an NSF funded project that will explore how families change on a global scale and will build a wealth of data to share. If you weren't able to make it to Luca Maria Pesando's, talk "Global Family Change: The Reshaping of Society's Most Fundamental Institution with Development" last week you are in luck! The presentation, followed by a lively discussion, is now available on our Youtube channel.
A USA Today article on increasing responsibility to care for both younger and older family members quotes Frank Furstenberg.
