Families, generations and health promotion

Theoretical and empirical research in this area focuses on social and socio-political problems related to families, generations and health promotion. Studies cover issues such as demographic challenges, socio-demographic developments, dynamics and changes in the course of life as well as family life, analysing the effects of current social processes on the course of life, families and family life, as well as studies in health and health promotion, nursing and care services in the context of increasing life expectancy, and the analysis of welfare state interventions.

In terms of topics the focus is on new structures of generational relationships, processes of transformation in the course of life, quality of life at work and in the family, and particularly questions of age-appropriate and health-promoting workplaces and forms of employment.
