Economic Consequences of Population Ageing and Intergenerational Equity
The European population is ageing at a rapid pace: the old-age dependency ratio in 28 EU countries will increase from 31 per cent today to 50 per cent by year 2040.

This webinar highlights the contributions of the latest issue of Research in Human Development, which advances the concept of vulnerability in life course studies. The authors argue that the concept of vulnerability is well suited to transcending disciplines and seizing complex, systemic, and dynamic processes related to stress and lack of resources in one or more life domains. Empirical examples address gender issues, work-life balance, “misleading norms,” and poverty in old age.
