6th International Workshop on the Socio-Economics of Ageing

Lissabon, Portugal

Date: 25-26 October 2019

Place: ISEG, Lisboa University, Lisbon, PORTUGAL

The IWSEA provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of topics related with population ageing, one of the most important social transformations of our times.

Research on ageing transcends disciplinary boundaries and this is reflected in the multiple dimensions covered in the workshop. We welcome the submission of theoretical, empirical and policy papers. The suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the relation between population ageing and the following:

  • Economic policies in ageing societies
  • Life-cycle consumption and saving profiles
  • Labour market behaviour
  • Well-being or happiness
  • The economic status of the elderly
  • Poverty, income distribution inequality, and social exclusion
  • Living arrangements and care arrangements
  • Intergenerational transfers, both public and private
  • The human rights of the aged
  • Age-friendly societies
  • Insurance
  • Population ageing in developing countries
  • Databases and statistics for research on ageing
