The Expert Group Meeting on 'Confronting family poverty and social exclusion, ensuring work-family balance and advancing social integration and intergenerational solidarity in Europe', took place in Brussels from 6 to 8 of June, 2012. It was organized as part of the preparations for the 20th anniversary of the International Year of the Family, 2014.

The preparations for the anniversary focus on reviewing family-oriented policies and strategies aiming mainly at confronting family poverty; ensuring work-family balance and advancing social integration and intergenerational solidarity. The preparatory process is to accelerate progress in family policy development; demonstrate its relevance for overall development efforts, and draw attention to the role of member states and other stakeholders in achieving these goals.

The approaching anniversary offers an opportunity to share good practices in family policy-making and use successful policies and programmes as benchmarks that can be adapted to local norms and socioeconomic conditions in different countries.
