Older Workers, Older Carers: A Social Reproduction Perspective on the European Union Active Aging Policies. Poland and Beyond

Dr Ania Zbyszewska

Lund Fellowship

Ania Zbyszewska received £10,000 from the Lund Fellowship scheme in the Norma Elder Law Research Environment at Lund University to become a visiting research fellow, where Ania will spend three months (April -July 2015). Whilst there Ania has worked in parallel with other labour lawyers and members of the Law Faculty-based Norma and Elder Law Research Environments on a number of projects analysing European policies aimed at employment activation of older people, particularly women, and examining crosscutting social and policy tensions that are exposed when older workers re-enter labour markets or when they are unable to do so. This work tackles important questions about the adequacy of long-term development plans that hinge heavily on active aging, as they do in many countries facing demographic crises and at the EU level. The funding comes from the Ragnar Söderberg’s Foundation and the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation.
