Qvortrup’s sociological work had been grounded in Marxism, and he had worked on social structure and welfare in socialist countries. In the 1980s, he went to the European Centre in Vienna to direct two projects: on divorce and changing family patterns. He was amazed to find that scholars working on ‘the family’ were interested in children only as problems for parents (costs, barriers to careers, childcare issues).
