About this book

This work investigates the challenges facing the African family. A series of external factors - social, political, economic, environmental - are impacting on the way the family functions, evolves, sustains itself and adjusts to these forces, and this book explores the nature of available data on which policies are premised. The contributors make clear the importance of the family to the development process, and call on development strategists to see the family as a dynamic source of change as much as a recipient of it.

Contents

The data situation - conceptual and methodological aspects; the African family - an overview of changing forms; the African family - between tradition and modernity; African family and changing nuptiality patterns; African family in rural and agricultural activities; migration and family interactions in Africa; African family and the status of women's health; African family systems in the context of economic crisis; law and the family in southern Africa.
