Panel on the Impacts of Population Ageing
Terms of Reference
The IUSSP Scientific Panel on the Impacts of Population Ageing focuses on the changes that population ageing brings about, both at the macro and at the micro level, in such diverse fields as the labour market; the pension, and more generally the intergenerational transfer system; private exchanges between relatives (inter vivo gifts, bequests, etc.); capital accumulation; etc. The policy implications and possible actions that these demographic changes entail will be explicitly considered, as well as the possibility of offsetting or reinforcing mechanisms on the interplay between the public and the private sphere. In so doing, special attention will be devoted to issues of intergenerational equity and long term sustainability of current arrangements and possible adjustments. The Scientific Panel organizes scientific and policy oriented seminars, and, more generally, stimulates the debate about these issues both in general terms and, when needed, with reference to specific countries or cases.
