Abstract: The International Fatherhood Summit 2003 brought together practitioners and academics from twenty countries to discuss practical work, policy issues, the state of current research, and areas of international concern around fathers. They discussed issues such as: What are the current economic, social, cultural and political factors and trends that affect what fathers do? What does research tell us about the effects of fathering on child development? What lessons can be learned from existing experiences in addressing fatherhood issues? Supporting fathers provides a basis for further discussion and exploration on providing the best possible environment for the development of children by explicitly placing fathers within the concept of 'parenthood'.
