ABSTRACT

The objective of this study is to analyse the origin of French Family Allowance, which has been appeared and generalized during the period of 1910-1945. The Family Allowance System of Textile Industries Consortium of Roubaix- Tourcoing(Consortium Textile de Roubaix-Tourcoing) and that of Compensation Fund of Paris Region(Caisse de Compensation de la Region Parisienne) have respectively provided the family allowances and the related services to the employees' families from the year of 1910s, which became the origin of French Family Policy. The Family Allowance System became universal in the 1930s in France. The main objective of the state intervention with Family Allowance System at that time was to solve the problem of low birth rate by supporting (financially and non-financially) the families with children. The "pronatalists" (the group of men and women composed of some civil servants, politicians, citizens, and professors) were the main initiators (actors of policy) of universal family policy in the 1920s-1930s in France. The Family Allowance system was incorporated into French Social Security System in the late 1940s.
