CfA – Social sustainability in ageing welfare states

Deadline: 4.April 2022

We would like to draw your attention to our stream 15 “Social sustainability in ageing welfare states” at the upcoming ESPAnet Conference in Vienna (14-16 September, 2022).  

In this stream, we invite empirical and theoretical contributions that aim to conceptualize and operationalize social sustainability, with a specific focus on demographic changes and the challenges these trends pose to sustainability. Especially contributions that address the synergies and trade-offs between economic and social sustainability are welcome. We invite studies dealing with e.g. extending working lives, the pension system, social and health care sector, informal care, or well-being among older population and, more generally, in ageing welfare states from the perspective of social sustainability. Also welcome are studies analysing how different policies contribute to social sustainability or studies addressing the challenges to social sustainability.

The full stream description can be found on the conference website:
