Project: Demographic change and intra and intergenerational distribution: Modelling the impact of different welfare models

Project Topic The WELTRANSIM project aims to explain the distributional effects induced by the ageing process and how welfare models contribute to mitigating such effects and securing wellbeing across the life cycle (from childhood to old age). Undoubtedly, population ageing changes the distribution of income, public resources and time use. In this respect, different welfare models induce different costs for actors and influence life course risks differently. WELTRANSIM places special emphasis on: 1. The distributional effects of education, particularly on causing life-expectancy differentials. 2. The potential generational conflict and the possible political pressure of the elderly on shifting resources from the young to the old. 3. The effects of changes in family structures and fertility trends in time and money transfers over the life cycle and particularly from/to old people. 4. The relationship between fertility, public and private transfers, and ageing.
