Policy Brief

Europe's Citizens Should Have a Choice

Toward a New Policy of Life-Course Flexibility

Key Messages

  • Even a new baby-boom and high migration cannot prevent Europe from population ageing over the next decades.
  • Population ageing and shrinking labour force will affect the productivity of the economy if no further reforms are undertaken.
  • These reforms should include a redistribution of work over the life-course which will also require a new system of social protection.
