Ministerial dialogue 2: FERTILITY: LOOKING BEYOND NUMBERS

Across Europe, fertility rates are low. This is of particular concern in countries where very low fertility is compounded by high levels of outmigration. Many women and men are not able to have the number of children they want as they face various obstacles, including challenges in balancing career and family or challenges related to affordable housing among others.
