A Quebec Social Research Partnership: Families in Motion and Intergenerational Dynamics

Renée B. Dandurand, Françoise-Romaine Ouellette

Familles en mouvance et dynamiques intergénérationnelles is a partnership bringing together academic researchers in social sciences and humanities, departments and organizations from the government of Quebec and provincial associations of the family sector. In a sociohistorical perspective, this article presents the sociopolitical context of the emergence and development of this partnership and the specifics of its aim. Then, the different phases of its course, since 1993, are addressed: the teams’ composition, the research’s issues and axes as well as the modalities of the intersectoral work of knowledge transfer and dissemination.
