Preventing inequality in ageing

Employment and Social policy
Date: Tuesday, 12 December 2017 15:30 - 17:00

Venue: CEPS  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

An event organised within the FACTAGE and BEL-ageing projects under the umbrella of CEPS Ageing Societies Programme

Europe’s population is ageing fast. A growing range of inequalities can already be detected among the elderly. Mortality rates and health vary across socio-economic groups, affecting their respective earnings potential and the possibility to extend working lives. 

With increasing labour market inequality over the past decades, higher statutory pension ages and recent pension reforms that tighten the link between contributions and benefits, there is a risk that inequalities among older people will increase in the coming years.

Hervé Boulhol, Senior Economist at the OECD, will present his organisation’s latest work on ways to address emerging inequalities among aging populations.

The discussion will emphasise a life-course approach, which seeks out policies that aim to prevent and mitigate inequalities from building up from an early age. The real challenge, however, will be to effectively design such policies within current budgetary constraints.

Participation in this event is exceptionally free of charge.

Registration from 15:00 - Meeting from 15:30 to 17:00
