Riscuri şi oportunităţi ale sistemului de asistenţă socială în România
Risk and opportunity within the welfare system in Romania
The paper focuses on the debate related to the directions on social policies and social assistance during the economic crisis in Romania. The gender policies are more visible in many papers which underline the role of child support social services for poor families and for women at risk (e.g. Roma population) and the importance of „affirmative action”. In the same time the arguments for family planning and the quality of birth are close-related to the improvement of the quality of family life and increasing the opportunities for women on the labour market.
