Our annual international conferences and, lately, webinars have themes reflecting the current activities and concerns of the membership and of the wider public. Participants gain information on new thinking about couple and family relations, as well as opportunities to network with and learn from likeminded individuals. Archive conference reports and papers are held in the database of GIDS (Institute of Sociology, KU Leuven, Belgium) and recent ones are published on this website.
The conferences also promote collaboration with family-related professionals and organisations worldwide. Conferences are normally held in a different part of the world each year, usually co-hosted by a local organisation. About twenty countries are usually represented at those events.
