Family and Family Change in Ireland: An Overview
Canavan, John
Journal of Family Issues, v33 n1 p10-28 Jan 2012
In Ireland, historically and in the current era, family has been a central concern for society and the State. This article provides a descriptive overview of family life in Ireland and of major family-related changes over the past 40 years. It presents a general framework of analysis within which these changes can be understood, considers the general nature of change and continuity in family in Ireland, and proposes some implications for research and policy in the early part of this century. (Contains 2 notes.)
