KINCS has received the head of the Institute of Family Studies and Ethics of Nairobi, Kenya
MD Jane Wathuta, Head of the Institute of Family Studies and Ethics at Strathmore University, Kenya, and colleagues from our Institute have consulted on the family policies of our countries.
The Kenyan professor has reported that there is a family policy document being compiled in her country and the overview of the Family Act is in progress. She has outlined her recently established Bachelor of Arts program at Strathmore University in Nairobi, which is of growing interest. In Kenya, the topic itself is unusual for the time being, as family policy is regarded primarily as an element of social policy. One of the main goals of the government elected in 2017 is to settle the issue of housing in Kenya, thus Ms. Wathuta has been particularly interested in the CSOK program, which can also provide them with important experiences.
Jane Wathuta has participated at the Family Law Conference of the Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest, and arrived at the Institute for the purpose of getting to know the Hungarian family policy measures of the past period and the work of KINCS. At the meeting, Balázs Molnár, Deputy Head of KINCS and András Székely, Head of Policy Analysis, have presented the activities of KINCS and have outlined in detail the family policy results of the period 2010-2018. Ms. Wathuta has showed great interest towards the Hungarian family benefits, the day-care system and the grandparents' leave supplement in central administration.
