  • Our societies are ageing. The Family is changing. Labour force behaviour is evolving. How is the organisation of family and collective solidarity adapting in this context of longer life spans, low fertility, and work that is simultaneously scarce and abundant?
    The welfare states are currently facing three main challenges: ensure satisfactory living conditions for the elderly without increasing the cost burden on the active population, reduce social inequality, and maintain equity between successive generations.
    In this book, researchers from different countries compare their experiences and offer contrasting views on the future of social protection. They consider the theoretical aspects of the intergenerational debate, relations between generations within the family, the living standards of elderly people, and the question of social time.

  • L'histoire de la retraite et de la vieillesse réserve bien des surprises. Aujourd'hui trois problèmes majeurs apparaissent. Les départs à la retraite de plus en plus précoces bouleversent le schéma traditionnel des âges de la vie. L'allongement de la longévité modifie les relations entre toutes les générations. Enfin, de ces deux données essentielles résulte l'apparition d'un "nouvel âge". Mais qu'en sera-t-il demain dans une société vieillissante dont le taux de natalité est en-dessous du seuil de renouvellement ?
