SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETATION WILL BE PROVIDED

The developmental importance of family policy has been increasingly recognized. Thus it is even more important to find answers about desirable directions of this policy.

  • What preferences should the lawmaker follow while shaping its instruments?


  • Which mechanisms can best achieve the targets of the policies?


  • Should a family policy primarily help the most vulnerable groups or be rather perceived as an investment?


  • Should its instruments affirm a specific family model?


These issues will be discussed during the international interdisciplinary conference Legal and Social Determinants of Family Policy.


The main aim of the conference is to evaluate the adequacy of different categories of family policy instruments based on the axiology of legal systems in contemporary states, including the norms of Polish Constitution of 1997 and the norms of international law and the EU law.

We shall analyze the role of family policy instruments in labor law, social insurance law and tax law. The discussion shall also include the effectiveness of family policy instruments, in particular the assessment of pleas for deinstitutionalization of social services.

The issue of the economic value of childcare will also be raised, basing on the definitions of work adopted in the legal system and in the terminology of social sciences and economics.
