Abstract
This research project studies the contemporary forms of solidarity within close kinship. Who helps each other, and on what occasions? Is the network more anchored in the female or male line? What is the impact of exchanges on the cohesion of kinship and, more generally, on its atmosphere? What norms, what legitimations underlie these exchanges?
