Consortium for International Family Studies

The Global Consortium for International Family Studies (GCIFS) was founded in the year 2011 by three Universities:-

Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, India

University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, Nebraska, USA

University of Newcastle, Callaghan, New South Wales, Australia

Since 2009, an international group of university teachers involved in Family Studies from Universities in USA, Australia, India, Greece, South Korea and China have been engaged in several meetings to discuss the possibility of developing a unique model of intercultural education in international family studies. These discussions culminated in the establishment of GCIFS. Mission GCIFS exists to create an educated and skilled workforce specializing in leading family centred policy, practice and the use of research to achieve goals relating to family wellbeing and resilience across diverse populations The GCIFS's vision is that every nation will have the capacity to foster the well-being and resilience of the diverse range of families domestically and internationally
