About the product

The evolution of the family in the Latin American and Caribbean countries reflects a number of world wide trends such as smaller family size, growing family instability, the variety of child rearing arrangements and changing parental roles. This book also contains seven documents that reflect the consensus reached on the priorities that should be addressed in actions to strengthen the institution of the family. Also included are the complete texts of the Cartagena Declaration and the Regional Proposal for the Elaboration of Action Guidelines for the Benefit of Latin American and Caribbean Families.
