Alberto Neidhardt presented the paper ‘The Fragmentation of the European family: Is There Life, and Free Movement, after Marriage?’. The paper examines questions related to the cross-border mobility of same-sex couples and of opposite-sex persons who are in non-marital unions. Instead of focusing their work on the recognition of marital status, a significant, but controversial symbolic move that ends up excluding unmarried couples, judicial authorities, advocacy groups, and scholars should look at the promising albeit unexplored recognition of the cross-border effects of all family relations.

Social cohesion / PUBLICATION
Trying Times - Rethinking Social Cohesion

Societies everywhere are faced with profound changes. The megatrends of globalization, digitalization and demographic change are affecting many areas of life and pose several challenges to social cohesion: What is the fate of solidarity in a globalized economy? How do algorithms and social media influence how we live together? How can we shape the future of coexistence in an increasingly diverse society? Addressing these and other issues, the study provides a set of focus questions at the end of each chapter that are designed to promote public debate on how to shape cohesion as we move forward.
