This chapter concludes the volume with some reflections on policy issues, covering the debate and analysis on state-family interaction (intergenerational relations and welfare states) and identifying the themes that have emerged throughout the volume, such as ‘are new patterns of reciprocity emerging?’. It addresses a missing piece of the puzzle — the role of social policy. It provides some reflections on the role of governments and policy issues influencing family roles, functions, and relationships, and whether and how policy and practice might further support intergenerational reciprocity.

Keywords:   state-family interaction, social policy, intergenerational reciprocity
