Abstract
The aim of this volume is to report on the international seminar Family Forms and the Young Generation in Europe, which took place in Milan in September 2001. Organised under the auspices of the European Observatory on the Social Situation, Demography and Family coordinated at the Austrian Institute for Family Studies, ISAís Research Committee Sociology of Youth, the Faculty of Sociology of the University of Milan-Bicocca, and Research Committee Vita Quotidiana of the Italian Sociological Association, the seminar focused on four interrelated topics: youth and transition to adulthood, generational relations, family and welfare systems in the transition to adulthood, and methodological issues. Broadly speaking, these topics were explored from two different viewpoints: from a policy perspective interested in the interaction between youth, family and welfare states, on the one hand; and from a sociological perspective, more concerned with analysing social practices and youth/family change in Europe, on the other.
