The Child and Family Research Lab - International Social Welfare
Projects in the International Social Welfare theme of the Child and Family Research Lab aims to further our understanding of the social policies and institutional arrangements that frame societal responses to child and family issues in the United States. As the world population becomes increasingly mobile, understanding how the movement of people across geographies, as well institutional responses to those changing populations, becomes essential for maximizing well-being for all people. For example, one project examines family policies, focusing on child care, single motherhood, reconciliation between family and work for low-income families in the United States and other industrialized countries. Another project studies social protection and welfare development in East Asian and Pacific countries. Issue focus includes child poverty, orphan care, child abuse, international immigration issues, street children, and migrant children.
