2011 was a special year for the family dimension at official EU institutional level. Indeed, the Hungarian Presidency organised a whole week around the family and demography themes: a large conference, an expert seminar, the high level group on demography and an informal meeting of the Family Ministers. The Polish Presidency was less directly family-oriented but had an important equal opportunities and reconciliation between family and work content.
COFACE of course took an active part in these events, advocating its pluralistic message, defending the idea of family policies intended to support all families in dignity and freedom, and stressing the difference with population policies.
