Overcoming the Barriers and Seizing the Opportunities for Active Ageing Policies in Europe - ACTIVAGE, Final Report, EUR 23107

Project ID: HPSE-CT-2002-00102


Demographic ageing threatens to unravel European social protection systems and labour markets in the not too-distant future. Welfare state reform is called for across policy domains yet remains controversial. How can European societies safeguard social rights without endangering the financial sustainability of welfare systems?
The ActivAge project takes a broad and comprehensive look into the way ten European societies are coping with the challenges posed by demographic ageing. It maps policy responses by different actors (state, firms, civil society) and across policy domains (labour market, pensions, health care) and examines their potential for success. We consider both the ideas that inform social policy reform and the policy measures in which these are translated.
