We are happy to announce that JPI MYBL funded six research projects in the joint call entitled ‘Equality and Wellbeing across Generations’. Results from these projects aim to improve our understanding of how demographic change is altering the implicit contract between generations and how policy can ensure that change reduces inequality instead of increasing it. Specifically, the research projects deal with three aspects of inequality: I) income and wealth, II) caring responsibilities and III) social and political participation.
- CAREWELL TF – Care, Inequality and Wellbeing in Transnational Families in Europe.
- CIVEX – Exclusion from civic engagement of a diverse older population: Features, experiences and policy implications.
- EUROCARE – Inequalities in informal caring over the adult life course in Europe: social participation, health and the influence of COVID-19
- EQUALCARE – Alone but connected? Digital (in)equalities in care work and generational relationships among older people living alone.
- PENSINEQ – Unequal ageing: life-expectancy, care needs and reforms to the welfare state.
- WELLCARE – Caring Over the Lifecycle: the Roles of Families and Welfare States Today and Into the Future.
