The change and transformation that has occurred as a result of factors such as globalization, industrialization and urbanization have also changed the family institution. Now families need much more support than they are in the past. This situation emerged the concept of family politics. It is seen that the concept of family policy is handled differently from the different windows. When examined the literature on the subject, it is seen that comprehensive theoretical examinations on family politics and academic studies on the effectiveness of applied policies are not done sufficiently. In our country, the issues such as concept, scope, objectives and tendencies of family politics have not been sufficiently discussed and even these terms have not been adequately explained in terms of terminology. Again, the work on family politics in our country generally focuses on a single topic. There is no study of the effectiveness of family politics as an overview. In this study; after examining the issues from the theoretical point of view, have been attempted to examine all aspects of family policies in Turkey and put forward to assessments and made recommendations. In the work it is presented, on the subject of family policies in Turkey, especially in recent years, made significant progress, the issue has effectively carried out, in both policy-making process and implementation. However, was considered to be still several shortcomings in the implementation and establishing policies.
