Possibilities to Establish Legal Definition of “Family” for the Needs of Family Policy
MetadataShow full item record
Purpose: Implementation of family policy is based on groups of instruments helping to achieve aims of the policy. One of such group of instruments is law of the state. To this end, law serves for the establishment of legal categories involved and institutionalized in legal system, which confers legal status on the subjects of the state. The state seeking to address particular groups of persons upon the implementation of public policy needs a clear definition of addressees of certain orders or permissions, as well subjects submitted with certain rights and obligations. Thus, the purpose of the paper is to provide proposals on the legal definition of “family” and “family members” which would contribute to proper implementation of family policy. The formulation of such proposals is chosen to be based on the analysis of functional fields of family policy.
