Autorentext:
What family is or should be, is already a discourse that varies within the respective local or regional culture. Here, three different positions can be recognized within these discourses. The first position is strongly focused on a family- constituting institution, marriage in particular: Family is everywhere, where, according to local, cultural or governmental rules a recognized institution exists, e.g. the marriage. If this element does not exist, it does not count as a family. A second position focusses on the responsible relation between parents and children (or grandparents and grandchildren or other relatives and children). Family is everywhere, where there are also several generations of relatives, determined by local, cultural or social customs. If this does not exist for several generations, there is no family. A third position is even more open and emphasizes lived solidarity. Therefore, family is each exclusive community of solidarity between two or more persons that is oriented on a relative duration. The existence of institutions as marriage or children or more generations of relatives does not matter.

Most of the worldwide renowned family structures can be found in one of the mentioned positions. The respective changes of family structures can vary between changes within one of the mentioned positions or change from one to the other position. For example, the social and/or legal classification of an institution such as marriage changes, the institution as constitutive element of the family remains in focus. A complete change can be noticed when the focus is more on the solidarity community than on the kinship care between relatives.

This volume collects contributions that reflect the changes of family structures from different perspectives. Aspects like marriage, new partnerships, alternative care and gender roles are as much a topic as indigenous knowledge, migration and women‘s rights. Geographically, this volume moves between the global north and the global south; between Africa and Europe, between South America and Asia. We would like to thank our dear colleagues, the authors of this volume, who made every effort to get involved in our project.
