Fatherhood.Global reports the science of fatherhood. The world’s leading researchers on fatherhood have come together to tell the new story they are discovering.

In 2014, the Jacobs Foundation held a meeting of some of the world’s leading fatherhood researchers in Marbach Castle in Switzerland. It was the first time that the full diversity of research on fatherhood was gathered in one place.

Two years later came the idea of uniting these and other leading researchers in a project to communicate the research systematically to parents and those who support them, communicating the profound new insights that come from this research and the challenges it presents to the way family life is often oganised.

The project was designed by Duncan Fisher OBEProfessor Michael Lamb of Cambridge University and Simon Sommer of the Jacobs Foundation. Duncan Fisher is managing the website.
