4th Call: Equality And Wellbeing Across Generations

Basic Information

Major demographic change is taking place across Europe and Canada. Rising life expectancy and falling fertility rates are changing family sizes and structures, and the length and nature of working life, while economic, political and environmental pressures are causing new patterns of migration into and within Canada and the European continent. These changes can increase inequality, bringing greater opportunities for some people, but fewer for others. Since high levels of inequality are damaging to both individuals and society, the Joint Programming Initiative “More Years, Better Lives” seeks to identify who benefits and who loses from demographic change. We are interested in how these inequalities are changing, how they can be avoided, and solidarity sustainably supported, through both policy and practice.

Aim of the joint call For this Call on Equality and Wellbeing across Generations (EWG), one key change is in the relationship between generations. Historical assumptions about mutual responsibilities and benefits may no longer be valid as we move from a three generation society to a four or five generation one. This Call therefore seeks proposals for research which will enhance our understanding of: 1. How demographic change is altering the implicit contract between generations? 2. How policy can ensure that change results in a reduction in inequality?
