    Exclusion from Social Relations in Later Lifeand the Role of Gender: A Heuristic Model2021In: Gender and Research, ISSN 2570-6578, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 16-35Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Being socially connected is a universal human need, but a substantial number ofolder men and women are or become excluded from these connections in later life. Exclusionfrom social relations (ESR) is unwanted as it undermines people’s ability to lead a healthy,active, and independent life. Policies to reduce this form of exclusion have been limited ineffectiveness, due in part to a broader lack of knowledge about the dynamics of socialexclusion in older ages and the intersection of social exclusion with gender constructions. Toadvance our understanding of ESR in later life, we develop a heuristic model based on theoriesand previous empirical studies. Considering the gendered constructing forces of ESR in olderage that can potentially lead to loneliness and reduced health and wellbeing, the modelidentifies individual drivers, such as biopsychosocial conditions, personal standards and life--course transitions, and macro-level drivers, such as norms and welfare state provisions. Thismodel can serve as a conceptual platform for further theoretical development and empiricalstudy on the gendered construction of ESR in later life. While our focus is on drivers of ESRand its outcomes, potential reversed effects are also discussed.

    Viele Welten des Alterns? Ältere Migranten im alternden Deutschland2012 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    In der Alternsforschung wurden Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund bisher weitgehend ausgeblendet und in der Migrationsforschung fanden ältere Menschen kaum Beachtung. Angesichts des zunehmenden Anteils Älterer in der Migrantenbevölkerung wird eine Verknüpfung der beiden Forschungszweige aber immer wichtiger. Das vorliegende Buch widmet sich der Auseinandersetzung mit dem Altern unter Migrationsbedingungen und der Lebensqualität älterer Migrantinnen und Migranten. Auf der Basis theoretischer Reflexionen, empirischer Befunde und politischer Überlegungen bietet der vorliegende Band erstmals einen fundierten Überblick über den aktuellen Kenntnis- und Diskussionsstand im Schnittfeld der beiden Forschungsgebiete.

    Abstract [de]

    Bedeutung und Bedingungen des Alterns haben sich in den westlichen Industrieländern in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten stark gewandelt. Altern als Veränderung über den Lebensverlauf und Altern als Lebensphase sind vielfältiger geworden. Zu dieser wachsenden Heterogenität trägt auch die Zunahme von Älteren mit Migrationshintergrund bei. Während in Wissenschaft und Öffentlichkeit die Aufmerksamkeit für die Vielfalt der Wege in die Lebensphase Alter und die Verschiedenartigkeit der Lebenssituationen älterer Menschen in den vergangenen Jahren merklich zugenommen hat, rücken ältere Migrantinnen und Migranten bisher noch selten ins Zentrum des Interesses. Sie werden zwar aufgrund steigender Zahlen und Bevölkerungsanteile zunehmend wahrgenommen. Das Forschungsfeld ‚Ältere Migranten‘ im Schnittpunkt von Alter(n)s- und Migrationsforschung kann jedoch noch nicht als etabliert gelten – weder in Deutschland, noch in anderen europäischen Ländern, die eine ähnliche demografische Entwicklung erleben.

    Die Einkommenssituation und -entwicklung Verwitweter in Deutschland2011In: Vierteljahreshefte zur Wirtschaftsforschung, ISSN 0340-1707, Vol. 80, no 4, p. 77-102Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The participation of the elderly in social prosperity has been a successful development for a long period of time but lately seems to get stuck. Old-age pensions of newly retired has been descending for years and real household income in later life is stagnating. Elderly people living in a single household are at an above-average risk of income poverty, which leads to the assumption that widowed persons more often than other groups tend to live in precarious income conditions. Although the public survivors' insurance compensates the effects of an income shock due to the death of a spouse up to a certain degree it does not necessarily enable to maintain the standard of living in widowhood. This article therefore addresses the development of the total income situation for widows and widowers. Using microdata from the German Ageing Survey (DEAS), income development can be traced from 1996 onwards, and effects of occupational and social determinants on the level of income are taken into account. Results show an increase of real equivalence income for the widows and widowers over time, with the exception of East German women. Gender, East or West Germany, social class, labour force participation and pillar of old age insurance are pivotal predictors for the income of widowed individuals. Women with low labour force participation over their lifecourse (housewife marriages) tend to have lower income and thus a higher poverty risk when their spouse deceases.Read More: http://ejournals.duncker-humblot.de/doi/abs/10.3790/vjh.80.4.77

    The value of pension reforms for late working life: evidence from Sweden2023In: International journal of sociology and social policy, ISSN 0144-333X, E-ISSN 1758-6720, Vol. 43, no 13/14, p. 79-89Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    PurposeDriven by the aim to increase the participation of older people in the labour force and to extend peoples working lives, the Swedish Parliament passed a bill in 1998 to increase the pension eligibility age from 60 to 61 years and establish a notional defined-contribution (NDC) plan. In this article, the authors investigate the impacts towards the prolongation of working lives expected from such an intervention.Design/methodology/approachThe authors apply a multinomial probabilistic model based on Swedish registry data on the birth cohorts 1937-1938 (n = 102,826) and observe differences in exit behaviour between eligible and non-eligible individuals.FindingsThe authors find that the cohorts eligible to the pension reform exit the labour market at a later age compared to non-eligible cohorts at the 61-years cut-off. The authors also find that the effect persists in the long term. Furthermore, the authors find that both men and women are equally struck by the reform.Originality/valueWhile there exist many descriptive reports and theoretical analyses on the costs and benefits of pension reforms, this study is the first one to empirically analyse the effect of the first European NDC pay-as-you go pension plan on the potential exclusion of old-aged workers.

    Exclusion and Inequality in Late Working Life: National Country Context: Sweden2021Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    This text is a first full draft that includes all the planned sections and covers key aspects of late working life issues in Sweden.

    Chapter 1 presents key statistical data for population structure and demographic processes in Sweden as well as labour market participation among the older groups of the population. It is mapping the main political economic discourses that frame late working life and brings in some historically important points for understanding the developments in the Swedish discourse. The aspects of the welfare regime and its transformations after the 1990s are included.

    Chapter 2 briefly introduces the Swedish social model and discusses the roles of social partners and institutional context. It also informs about particularities regarding authorities and unique aspects of the Swedish social model. The most information-rich part is the presentation of the discourses and the positions of the main actors in the Swedish labour market. They actively contribute to shaping the political agenda and policy outcomes that translate into specific legislation.

    Chapter 3 presents patterns and characteristics of current late working life in Sweden, and focusses on late labour market participation and exit, working conditions, sectoral distributions, and lifelong learning aspects. The main inequalities are discussed under these headings.

    Chapter 4 is an account of the most influential policies for late working life in Sweden. It covers three main sections. Namely, retirement and pensions, disability insurance and policies related to the labour market inclusion. These policies are analysed regarding their impact on extending working lives as well as their potential to decrease inequalities in the labour market, in particular amongst older workers.

    The text provides, finally, a brief overview of developments and policies regarding late working life in Sweden. Moreover, it sketches how these developments and policies affect inequalities in late working life. This is followed by an appendix containing additional data.

    Ungleichheit sozialer Teilhabe im Alter2013In: Zeitschrift für Gerontologie und Geriatrie (Print), ISSN 0948-6704, E-ISSN 1435-1269, Vol. 46, no 5, p. 410-416Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of active ageing comprises the maintenance of societal participation throughout the life span into old age. “Good” ageing in line with this activity paradigm develops into a starting point of social inequality rather than being its result. Based on the German Ageing Survey (DEAS) we investigated access to volunteering and to educational activities depending on social and spatial aspects of inequality. Societal participation is socially and spatially structured. Individuals from a lower social class are less often involved in educational activities or in volunteering. Moreover, individuals living in economically disadvantaged regions are less likely to participate than in economically strong regions. Disadvantages cumulate if low individual resources overlap with poor economic conditions in the living area. Measures to facilitate participation should be taken on the local level to enhance opportunities for volunteering and educational activities. This should help to sustainably increase the participation of individuals from lower social classes.

    Older Workers in Digitalizing Workplaces: A Systematic Literature Review2022In: Journal of Aging and Social Change, ISSN 2576-5310, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 37-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Workplace digitalization created a sea change in work practices and it altered the situation of older workers. Digitalization entails the increased use of digital technologies, such as computers and online services. Older workers often possess limited digital skills, which may put their labor market participation at risk. Previous studies began exploring how older workers fare when their workplaces are digitalizing. However, the research field is still emerging and remains fragmented. This article comprises a systematic literature review that takes inventory of what we currently know about older workers in digitalizing workplaces. It demonstrates that older workers experience the digitalization of their workplaces in various areas, reaching from health monitoring to work arrangements. Interestingly, challenges and opportunities emerge in each area affected. This Janus-faced situation underlines the complexity of consequences, and it raises questions about social inequalities in these consequences. The work environment plays a crucial role in shaping how older workers experience workplace digitalization. It shapes which options for adaptation they have, and to which degree they can act on these options. This circumstance makes workplaces an excellent starting point for interventions. Country-characteristics likewise exert an influence. While characteristics such as retirement regulations are purposefully modified for intervention, other characteristics, such as culture, are not. This circumstance limits governmental options for shaping the situation of older workers in digitalizing workplaces. Future research should further explore the situation of older workers in digitalizing workplaces, paying special attention to the theoretical framework and to developments in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Development of healthcare use across contemporary retirement pathways: results from a register based cohort study2022In: Scandinavian Journal of Public Health, ISSN 1403-4948, E-ISSN 1651-1905, Vol. 50, no 4, p. 440-447Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: We aimed to understand the interplay between retirement pathways and healthcare use in the postponed and structurally changing context of retirement.

    Methods: Based on Swedish register data on income and healthcare use, we applied combined sequence and cluster analysis to identify typical pathways into retirement and analysed their relation to healthcare use developments.

    Results: We detected five distinct pathways into retirement. Level of healthcare use was significantly higher for the pathway via disability pensions. We saw an overall increase in healthcare use across the retirement process that was related to age rather than to the different pathways.

    Conclusions: Level of healthcare use at the beginning of the retirement process may be related to selection into different pathways of retirement. We did not find clear evidence across several healthcare measures that different pathways lead to different developments in healthcare use.

    Do private intergenerational transfers from elderly parents increase social inequality among their middle-aged children? Evidence from the German Ageing Survey2005In: The journals of gerontology. Series B, Psychological sciences and social sciences, ISSN 1079-5014, E-ISSN 1758-5368, Vol. 60B, no 1, p. S30-S36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives. This study examines the consequences of private intergenerational transfers from elderly parents to their middle-aged children with respect to social inequality within the children's generation.

    Methods. With use of the nationally representative cross-sectional sample of the German Aging Survey, descriptive analyses as well as multivariate logistic regressions are used to identify the effects of three different types of private intergenerational transfers in the middle-age group (40–54 year olds, n = 1,719 for inter vivos and n = 1,446 for mortis causa transfers).

    Results. Transfers from parents or parents-in-law during the last 12 months—many of them smaller ones—are not significantly related to children's income. Separated and divorced children have significantly higher probabilities of receiving such transfers, indicating a need-directed family transfer process. Larger transfers before the last 12 months are need directed as well and moreover positively related to income position. Bequests, finally, are positively related to income position while having no need component at the time of observation.

    Discussion. Whereas larger monetary transfers and bequests may increase social inequality in the children's generation, a substantial part of the regular monetary flow from elderly parents to their adult children buffers situations of need. Public policy should take into account these different effects. Reducing the general level of public pensions would weaken regular transfer giving and thus lead to more inequality in the children's generation. Higher taxation of very large transfers and bequests would have the opposite effect.

    Grandparenthood: A Universal Aspiration for Later Life? On the Subjective Importance of the Grandparent Role in Germany2011In: Advances in Life Course Research, E-ISSN 1040-2608, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 145-155Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the light of changing opportunity structures for the experience of grandparenthood, we address older parents’ attitudes towards the grandparent role. Our focus is on the interrelationship between the importance of the grandparent role and social class. The likelihood of the transition to grandparenthood and the opportunities to enact the grandparent role clearly differ according to an individual's social class position. We therefore ask whether the importance attached to grandparenthood varies for individuals from different social classes as well. Furthermore, we test for other correlates of the subjective importance of grandparenthood, such as the quality of family relations, marital status, and value orientations towards life in general.

    The analyses are based on data of the German Ageing Survey, a nationally representative study of individuals aged 40 years and older. Data collected in 2008 provide information on the subjective importance of (prospective) grandparenthood as reported by grandparents and non-grandparents.

    According to our data, the subjective importance of experienced as well as prospective grandparenthood does not vary by social class. Instead, we find relationship quality with grandchildren to be most influential and positively related to the perceived importance of the grandparent role. The same holds true for non-grandparents and their relationships with children. Conservative value orientations promote the importance of a future transition to grandparenthood only. In light of the findings, and given the changing opportunities to experience the grandparent role, grandparenthood might evolve into an unequally distributed social resource for later life.

    Proactive healthcare for frail elderly persons: study protocol for a prospective controlled primary care intervention in Sweden2019In: BMJ Open, E-ISSN 2044-6055, Vol. 9, no 5, article id e027847Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction The provision of healthcare services is not dedicated to promoting maintenance of function and does not target frail older persons at high risk of the main causes of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of a proactive medical and social intervention in comparison with conventional care on a group of persons aged 75 and older selected by statistical prediction.

    Methods and analysis In a pragmatic multicentre primary care setting (n=1600), a prediction model to find elderly (75+) persons at high risk of complex medical care or hospitalisation is used, followed by proactive medical and social care, in comparison with usual care. The study started in April 2017 with a run-in period until December 2017, followed by a 2-year continued intervention phase that will continue until the end of December 2019. The intervention includes several tools (multiprofessional team for rehabilitation, social support, medical care home visits and telephone support). Primary outcome measures are healthcare cost, number of hospital care episodes, hospital care days and mortality. Secondary outcome measures are number of outpatient visits, cost of social care and informal care, number of prescribed drugs, health-related quality of life, cost-effectiveness, sense of security, functional status and ability. We also study the care of elderly persons in a broader sense, by covering the perspectives of the patients, the professional staff and the management, and on a political level, by using semistructured interviews, qualitative methods and a questionnaire.

    Ethics and dissemination Approved by the regional ethical review board in Linköping (Dnr 2016/347-31). The results will be presented in scientific journals and scientific meetings during 2019–2022 and are planned to be used for the development of future care models.

    Armut im Alter?: Ergebnisse der Berliner Altersstudie zur Einkommenslage alter und sehr alter Menschen1993In: Zeitschrift für Soziologie, ISSN 0340-1804, Vol. 22, no 6, p. 433-448Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Die materielle Absicherung alter Menschen zu gewährieisten, ist eines der zentralen sozialpolitischen Ziele, gerade bei einer zunehmenden Alterung der Bevölkerung. Inwieweit sind alte und sehr alte Menschen von Armut betroffen? Ermöglicht das Alterssicherungssystem den Alten die Aufrechterhaltung eines ausreichenden Lebensstandards? Im theoretischen Teil der Studie werden Armuts- und Einkommenskonzepte diskutiert. Die empirische Untersuchung basiert auf einer Stichprobe von über 70-jährigen Personen in West-Berlin, die im Rahmen der Berliner Altersstudie gewonnen wurde. Erstens wird gezeigt, daB alte Menschen in Berlin insgesamt nur in geringem Maß von Armut betroffen sind. Zweitens wird jedoch belegt, dass die finanzielle Lage der über 70-Jährigen sehr unterschiedlich ist. So sind insbesondere uber 85-jährige Frauen und Heimbewohner von einem beträchtlichen Armutsrisiko betroffen. Die Ergebnisse einer Regressionsanalyse auf die Wohlfahrtslage alter Menschen verdeutlichen, daB die Verwitwung nicht mit einer Verschlechterung der Einkommenslage einhergeht. Vielmehr verfügen die Verwitweten beider Geschlechter über höhere finanzielle Ressourcen als die Verheirateten.  Merkmale des Erwerbsverlaufs erweisen sich als zentrale Prädiktoren der materiellen Lage im Alter. Unterschiede in den Wohlfahrtspositionen alter und sehr alter Frauen werden plausibel, wenn man berücksichtigt, dass Erwerbsverläufe kohortenspezifisch verlaufen sind.

    Abstract [de]

    Das sozialstaatliche Alterssicherungsarrangement in Deutschland steht unter zunehmendem Anpassungsdruck. Das vorliegende Buch diskutiert Grundlagen, Probleme und Reformperspektiven und betont aus einer sozialpolitischen, familiensoziologischen, und alter(n)swissenschaftlichen Perspektive die Verknüpfung der öffentlichen intergenerationalen Umverteilung mit den privaten Generationenbeziehungen. Beide Gefüge und ihre Verbindung werden empirisch untersucht. Hierdurch wird die ökonomisch verengte Perspektive der gegenwärtigen Debatten um Generationengerechtigkeit und die Reform der Alterssicherung erweitert - mit entscheidenden Konsequenzen für ihre Bewertung.

    Spätes Erwerbsleben während der COVID-19- Pandemie in Schweden2021Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Während der COVID-19-Pandemie hat sich Schweden von Anbeginn auf Empfehlungen wie Kontaktreduzierung and Abstand konzentriert, aber trotz des Verzichts auf lockdownähnliche Maßnahmen standen und stehen die Menschen  wie überall vor großen Herausforderungen. Während altersbedingte Sterblichkeitsrisiken und die Rolle der stationären und ambulanten Pflege in Schweden wohlbekannt sind, ist weiterhin wenig über die Folgen insbesondere für die späte Erwerbstätigkeit bekannt. Ziel diese Beitrags ist es daher, die Auswirkungen und Pandemiefolgen in Schweden unter dem Gesichtspunkt sozialer Risiken im Bereich des Erwerbslebens und der Ungleichheit in Bezug auf Alter und Geschlecht vor den Hintergrund von Pandemie- und Gleichstellungspolitiken zu verstehen. Es werden Veränderungen und deren Bewertungen während der Pandemie und der damit verbundenen politischen Maßnahmen erörtert. Es wird vor dem Hintergrund der schwedischen Pandemiepolitiken gefragt a) Welche Veränderungen im Bereich der Erwerbsarbeit erleben Menschen unterschiedlichen Alters in Schweden? b) Wie zufrieden sind Menschen unterschiedlichen Alters mit den Veränderungen im Arbeitsleben und welches sind wichtigsten Herausforderungen? c) Hat die COVID-19-Pandemie im Hinblick auf Alter, Geschlecht einen ungleichen Einfluss auf das Erwerbsleben? 

    Die Division Ageing and Social Change (www.ageing.se) der Linköping University , in Schweden hat hierzu eine Online-Umfrage mit bisher zwei Wellen durchgeführt (eine dritte Welle wird im Juni 2021 hinzugefügt). Die Stichprobenziehung erfolgte durch Online-Werbung in den größten Tageszeitungen Östergötlands mit 780.000 zufällig verteilten Seitenaufrufen im Juni und Dezember 2020 (n = 1.100 (617/483), 30-74 Jahre, gewichtet nach Alter, Geschlecht und Bildung). Die Studie wurde im Rahmen des Forschungsprogramms EIWO (www.eiwoproject.org; Forte dnr. 2019-01245) durchgeführt. Die Ergebnisse zeigen Ergebnisse zu Veränderungen und deren subjektive Bewertung im Verlauf  der Pandemie: Ältere Arbeitnehmer sind anfangs allgemein weniger negativ von pandemiebedingten Veränderungen betroffen als jüngere. Auffallend sind hingegen starke Geschlechtsunterschiede hinsichtlich Auswirkungen und Bewertungen, die negativen Konsequenzen in der Gruppe der 65-Jährigen und Älteren sowie der Anteil und die Zusammensetzung der Gruppe, die von positiven Veränderungen berichtet.

    Ageing, life-course and social change: research programme of the Division Agieng and Social Change (ASC)2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims – This research programme forms the basis for further development of the Division Ageing and Social Change (ASC) as a leading Swedish and European research institution in the field of ageing and later life. The programme defines the conceptual framework of the division as well as the structure of its research themes. In doing so, it forms a proposal for cutting-edge research on ageing and later life within the institutional context of the Department of Social and Welfare Studies at Linköping University. The programme highlights the opportunities and connecting possibilities inherent in multidisciplinary cooperation. This approach is consistent with the key requirements for innovative research on ageing and later life i.e. the need for scientific excellence plus the need for a reliable core unit within Linköping University. At the same time, the programme reflects the basic orientations of ASC’s professorships.

    Conceptual basis – Research at ASC integrates analyses of social conditions with analyses of individual ageing processes. This is done within the theoretical framework of life-course research. The concept of the life-course as an institution, as a trajectory and as a lived biography within its macro-societal context is at the heart of ASCs agenda. It allows ASC to organize research from a truly multi-level perspective. ASC systematizes its multi-level- and life-course-oriented research on ageing and later life from two main angles. First, the structural and institutional dimensions of changing societies, populations and welfare systems that are related to changes in individual resources, performance and outcomes on all levels are emphasized. Second, ASC focusses on how the everyday life and health of older people are related to the social context of networks, families, local communities and local institutions and how they are embedded in macro environments such as economic and social security systems as well as their impact on these conditions.

    Research themes – In researching ageing and later life from the multi-level perspective of the life-course, ASC devotes itself to three key research themes that are strongly interdependent. The first theme is ‘ageing and social structure’, and it focuses on the issues of social inequality, integration and exclusion within a changing welfare society. The second theme is ‘ageing between health and disease’ and has a focus on health behaviours, ageing with morbidities and disabilities, as well as support needs and care and care systems. The third theme is ‘ageing in context’, which deals with the changing social, technological and spatial environments of individual ageing and their impact on individual agency and autonomy. In general, ‘future ageing’ is a major focus of ASC’s research. ASC’s intent is to contribute to discussions on the future of later life in an ageing society by generating knowledge that facilitates social debate on how to configure and achieve a sustainable society for all ages in Sweden, Europe and beyond.

    Agenda – Based on this comprehensive research program, ASC settles on a short-term research agenda that is adjusted on a yearly basis according to changes in scientific and societal debates, university needs and funding opportunities. The research agenda serves as a foundation for activity planning and for joint activities.

    Precarious pathways into retirement and new risks for gendered economic exclusion in Sweden, 1990-20152019In: Innovation in Aging, E-ISSN 2399-5300, Vol. 3, no Supplement_1, p. S131-S131Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ability and disposition of ageing people to maintain their labour market activity and/or to retire from work structurally depend on pension systems, activation policies, ageism, changing for labor demand and economic shifts. Structural conditions are changing, but social change does not mature homogeneously and neither do the institutional shifts induced by it. Gains in opportunities and resources do not benefit all people, groups and even societies in the same way. Changes increase insecurities and life course inhomogeneity, create unequally distributed challenges and show asynchrony in shifts and outcomes. They generate new precarity in ageing and socially structured risks for exclusion in work and retirement and refer to existing later life inequalities by cohort, gender, region, education, class and ethnicity. From this perspective of ageing and social change, the paper deals with shifts in late work and retirement patterns and later-life outcomes under changing institutional conditions, focusing on gendered risks for economic exclusion and later life precarity in Sweden. Swedish registry data comprising individual work and health histories as well as employer, regional and neighborhood information on the total population 50+ ever living in Sweden 1990-2015 is used in a cohort sequential perspective. Analyses focus on gender inequalities and concentrate on occupational activities, retirement transitions and pension revenues under changing social conditions. Models find increasingly heterogeneous preretirement and transition patterns, new gender gaps and increasing risks of economic exclusion in retirement with disadvantaged groups as forerunners in overall relative declines in later-life economic positions.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses shifts in inequality over time in Sweden, which serves as a case example of a quickly changing welfare society. Its 60+ population of today faced the golden age of capitalism, prosperity and welfare but also crises, new uncertainties, erosions and shifts in social norms and organisation of labour. These changes add to life course inhomogeneity, generate asynchronies, and create winners and losers regarding life chances and inclusion. Transformations in life courses and social institutions exacerbate the cumulation of (dis)advantage and have crucial impacts on employment, retirement transitions and later life. Aspects like gender, cohort, education, ethnicity and others moderate these dynamics. Increasing disparities between societies give rise to migration and contribute in turn to differences within countries.This study deals with changing population compositions, patterns and later-life consequences of life courses in Sweden focusing on inter- and intra-cohort disparities. By taking an international comparative perspective, Swedish trends are contrasted with those in other European societies. Based on extensive Swedish registry information and European survey data from EU-SILC, this study assesses changes in trajectories and distributions in a cohort-sequential perspective.Results of this ongoing study find significant shifts in life course patterns that are fortified by variations in population compositions, with disadvantaged groups as forerunners in overall relative declines in later-life economic positions, and increasing intra-cohort inequalities corresponding with unexpected drawbacks for many as well as new possibilities for others.

    Exclusion and inequality in late working life in the political context of the EU2022Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    European societies need to increase the participation in work over the life course to support the provision of qualified labour and to meet the challenges for social security systems under the condition of their ageing populations. One of the key ambitions is to extend people’s working lives and to postpone labour market exit and retirement where possible. This requires informed policies, and the research programme EIWO – ‘Exclusion and Inequality in Late Working Life: Evidence for Policy Innovation towards Inclusive Extended Work and Sustainable Working Conditions in Sweden and Europe’ – aims to push the boundaries of knowledge about late working life and the potential of its inclusive and equal prolongation via a theoretically driven, gender-sensitive combination of multi-level perspectives. EIWO takes a life course approach on exclusion and inequality by security of tenure, quality of work, workplaces, and their consequences. It identifies life course policies, promoting lifelong learning processes and flexible adaptation to prolong working lives and to avoid increased exclusion and inequality. Moreover, it provides evidence for policies to ensure both individual, company and societal benefits from longer lives. To do so, EIWO orientates its analyses systematically to the macro-political contexts at the European Union level and to the policy goals expressed in the respective official statements, reports and plans.

    This report systematizes this ambitious approach. Relevant documents such as reports, green books and other publications of the European Commission (EC), the European Parliament (EP), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), as well as those of social partners and research institutions, have been systematically scanned and evaluated. In addition, relevant decisions of European summits have been considered. The selection of documents claims completeness regarding relevant and generally available publication, while relevance is defined from the point of view of EIWO’s interests.

    It is the aim of this report to provide a sound knowledge base for EIWO’s analyses and impact strategies and to contribute to the emerging research on the connection between population ageing and the European policies towards productivity, inclusiveness, equity, resilience and sustainability.

    This report aims to answer the following questions:

    1. How are EIWO’s conceptual classification and programme objectives reflected in the European Union’s policy programming?
    2. How can EIWO’s analyses and impact benefit from a reference to current EU policy considerations, and how does this focus support the outline of policy options and the formulating of possible proposals to Swedish and European stakeholders?

    The present report was written during early 2022; analyses were finalized in February 2022 and represent the status until this date.

    Old age economic exclusion2018In: Innovation in Aging, E-ISSN 2399-5300, Vol. 2, no suppl_1, p. 676-676Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses research perspectives on older people’s economic exclusion in Europe as outlined within the EU COST Action CA1522 on Old-Age Social Exclusion (ROSEnet). Economic exclusion (EE) describes a process over the life course with comprehensive impact on ageing and old age. At the same time, older people’s EE is a state of marginalization in later life. As a process, it is linked to individual chances and decisions to participate in paid work, occupational activities and unpaid homework, work quality, consumption and life-styles, and retirement. EE has a basis in social class and origin, individual qualifications, changing education systems, and shifting labour markets, and it is inseparable from social policy regimes as well as from organisational policies and workplace practices. Thus, the concept is deeply rooted in economic approaches to the development of material wellbeing over the life-course and the capacity to address expected and unexpected changes in the level of material conditions and needs at different points in the life-course. Unlike traditional approaches to material wellbeing that tend to focus on the dimension of poverty and income, the concept of EE extends beyond financial aspects of material conditions to a broader perspective on individual lives. This presentation draws on international literature to shed light on the relationship between the standard economic concepts of material wellbeing and EE. The aim is to provide a knowledge synthesis of EE and its significance for individuals in later life and old age.

    Welfare States and Quality of Later Life: Distributions and Predictions in a Comparative Perspective2009In: European Journal of Ageing, ISSN 1613-9372, E-ISSN 1613-9380, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 67-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Demographic transitions are a driver of social change and societal ageing influences the resources and chances in life of different age groups. As a contribution to the debate on (potential) results of the transformation of social security in ageing societies, the impact of social security systems on distributions of quality of life in later life is discussed. Quality of life is introduced as a helpful concept to answer the paper’s research questions: How are levels of quality of life in later life and the variability of objective and subjective quality of life indicators related to welfare state arrangements? What is the relevance of social structure indicators for this variability, how is it related to old age security, and what can be learned for the perspectives of current debates on equity and social security reforms? In a comparative perspective employing Esping-Andersen’s welfare regime typology, three basic hypotheses are thoroughly tested: the ‘hypothesis of (relative) levels’, the ‘distribution hypothesis’ and the ‘social structure hypothesis’. The analyses apply micro data from ten countries. While most of them are included in the first wave of the international comparative research project SHARE, data for England come from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing. Descriptive analyses as well as multivariate models prove an interconnection between welfare state systems and quality of life indicators but not all three hypotheses can be fully confirmed. Social policy implications of these findings are discussed and a basis for extended future analyses is outlined.
