Project: Sociology of retirement
The project studies the social and cultural aspects of retirement. Emphasis is given to the analysis of the social embeddedness of older workers, their labour force behaviour and on the impact of retirement on their personal lives.
Various research questions are addressed with different types of data. Within the framework of this project a PhD project is carried out on late life transitions and social integration which is supervised by Henkens and Kalmijn (Tilburg University).
