Chapter Summary

The chapter outlines the analytical concepts of Culture-1 and Culture-2 coined by Vladimir Paperny and suggests that they might prove to be quite useful while examining the changes that have taken place in the Ukrainian family as time passed. Culture-1 is characterized by the civil society and the intimate sphere. The chapter discusses the socio-historical background of Ukraine in Soviet times and after the collapse of Soviet Union. It focuses on the interaction of the state and market in Ukraine and on familism and its characteristics while talking about Ukraine. The chapter deals with change in the family, provides details about issues of fertility, marriage and divorce pays special attention to pluralisation of lifestyles. It states that a socio-cultural lag might exist while discussing familism and individualisation in Ukraine. The modified theory of the second demographic transition looks at the gap between living conditions, value orientations, and demographic behaviour.
