Policies for Families: Work, Poverty and Resources. Proceedings of Seminars Held in London (October 27 and 31, 1994).
Bayley, Rosalind, Ed.; Condy, Ann, Ed.; Roberts, Ceridwen, Ed.
Concerned with the need to assess strategies for dealing with poverty and work concerns and to base British public policy on an appreciation of how different types of families are differentially affected by a changed labor market and an unchanged benefit system, this report compiles proceedings of seminars held in 1994 on the relationship between work, family, and resources. The seminars were organized by the Family Policy Studies Centre (FPSC) in observance of the International Year of the Family. The sessions on family and work are: (1) "More work in fewer households?" (Paul Gregg); (2) "Relationships between Women's Employment and Other Activities" (Jay Gershuny); (3) "Family Working at Home and at Work: Discussion" (Ceridwen Roberts); (4) "Paying for Care" (Hilary Land); (5)"Parents at Work" (Lucy Daniels); (6) "The Role of the State and Other Agencies: Discussion" (Rupert McNeil); and (7) "The Role of the State and Other Agencies: Conclusions on Work" (Pamela Meadows). Seminars on families, poverty, and resources are: (1) "Routes into and out of Poverty over the Life Course" (Robert Walker); (2) "The Relationship between Health and Income Equality among Families" (Richard Wilkinson); (3) "Causes, Consequences and Extent of Poverty: Discussion" (David Piachaud); (4) "Lowering the Barriers to Work" (Alan Marsh); (5) "Poverty and Family Resources" (Lynne Berry); (6) "The Role of the State: In Search of a Family-Friendly Benefit Policy. Discussion" (Michael Whippman); and (7) "The Role of the State: In Search of a Family-Friendly Benefit Policy. Conclusions on Poverty" (Ceridwen Roberts). Four appendices include biographical information on the contributors and FPSC briefings on "Families and Work" and "Families, Poverty, and Resources." (KB)
