Families and Family Policies Observatory


Established in 2010, the Observatory on Families and Family Policies (Observatório das Famílias e das Políticas de Família - OFAP) is a structure within the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon (Instituto de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa - ICS-ULisboa), having established a partnership with CIES-IUL in the year of its founding. 


The two main lines of research of OFAB are to accompany the evolution of the forms and dynamics of family life, as well as its impact in the demographic patterns and monitoring and spreading awareness of governmental action and other initiatives which regulate and support family life in Portugal.


Director: Karin Wall (ICS-ULisboa)
