GGP at a Glance on  family solidarity

GGP at a Glance on family solidarity

Migration can have profound consequences for family solidarity: when adult children leave the country of origin, ageing parents are deprived of potential care and support. This is especially disruptive in societies where families play an indispensable role in care and welfare provisions, as is the case in Eastern Europe.

GGP at a Glance on gender equality

GGP at a Glance on gender equality

Gender equality varies considerably across Europe. In many countries, there is still a strong belief in traditional gender roles. In Central and Eastern Europe, there is still a large proportion of the population that believes men shoud be prioritised for jobs when there is a scarcity of work. This is in stark contrast to Scandinavia and Western Europe where such views are much less common.

Taken by surprise: How older workers struggle with a higher retirement age

Taken by surprise: How older workers struggle with a higher retirement age

Until 2006 the Netherlands, like many other European countries, had a very strong “early retirement culture”. But that is history now. Early exit routes have been closed, and moreover, State Pension Age will increase to 67. Employees and employers need to change their perspectives on retirement in response to pension reforms that have taken place in quick succession. New NIDI research shows how older workers are reacting to the changing pension landscape: many feel they have been taken by surprise and there is a great deal of anger. For a large group of older workers, retiring later is not as easy as it may seem.

NIDI scenario: Strong population decline in China

United Nations projections assume that by the end of this century one third of the world population will live in India, China or Nigeria. While population growth in India will slow down and the population size of China will decline, population growth in Nigeria will accelerate. A new NIDI scenario projects less population growth in Nigeria and sharp population decline in China.

A NIDI team of researchers working on the project Families of migrant origin: a life course perspective (FaMiLife) has investigated the role of international migration on the lives of migrants and their families, both in origin and destination countries.

Inequality in demographic behaviour: How important are parents?

Inequality is on the rise across Western societies. A key aspect of inequality is that the life choices and life chances of individuals depend on their social background. This certainly is true for socio-economic outcomes, like how much you earn and the status of your job. But to what extent is this true for demographic behaviour, like leaving home, marriage, parenthood and divorce?
