Sažetak
Intergenerational Family Solidarity in Europe is the theme of this issue of journal Društvena istraživanja. Intergenerational family solidarity is a construct that includes relationships among family members and their mutual exchange: relations of grandparents and their grandchildren, social support, quality of marital satisfaction, intergenerational differences, the importance of the quality of relations of the elderly and their adult children. The quality of life of older family members is linked to reciprocity in relationships, the older they are the more involved they are in the family and more satisfied with life ; this is reproduced in different ways in younger generations and vice versa. The texts in this issue combine a contemporary view of family relationships, described in the model of intergenerational solidarity by US scientist Verna L. Bengston. The dimensions of this model are frequent contacts, emotional proximity, similarity in thought, geographical proximity, receiving help / helping, contacts, proximity, i.e. different factors associated with the quality of life at different periods of an individual's life cycle.Intergenerational Family Solidarity in Europe is the theme of the COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) Action IS1311 "Intergenerational Family Solidarity across Europe" (INTERFASOL) funded by the European Union. The authors of this thematic issue are active scientists from the field of psychology, sociology and other fields of social sciences, as well as collaborators in the COST Action IS1311 involving hundreds of scientists from 28 countries (EU, Israel and Turkey). In this issue, Isabelle Albert and Dieter Ferring of the University of Luxembourg present some results from a larger research study on intergenerational relations with an emphasis on intergenerational solidarity in adulthood and the role of family norms in intergenerational support and ambivalence. Valentine Hlebec and Maše Filipovič Hrast from the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Ljubljana analyse the characteristics and determinants of intergenerational financial transfers within families using mixed care for elderly people, where mixed care refers to a combination of formal and informal care for the elderly, within dyads comprising a care recipient and a family caregiver.Andreja Brajša-Žganec, Ljiljana Kaliterna Lipovčan from the Institute of Social Sciences Ivo Pilar and Ivan Hanzec from Croatian Studies at the University of Zagreb using a representative sample of 1000 Croatian citizens divided into three age groups investigated how the perception of social support obtained from different sources (family, friends, significant others) contributes to well-being (happiness, life satisfaction and domain satisfactions) across the life span.Ursula Trummer and Sonja Novak-Zezula from the Centre for Health and Migration in Austria consider intergenerational solidarity in families of migrants.
