Is a longer working life for everyone? Exploring emerging inequalities among older workers

Working longer is the fundamental response to the challenges posed by population ageing to European welfare states. FACTAGE (www.factage.eu), a new CEPS-led European Joint Programming Initiative project, explores where and how the extension of working lives could lead to the emergence of socioeconomic inequalities.

A Fiscal Stabilisation Function for the Euro Area

Annual CEPS-Intereconomics Conference: A Fiscal Stabilisation Function for the Euro Area





The Five Presidents’ Report of 2015 has called for a macroeconomic stabiliser at the EMU level that would be capable of dealing with asymmetric shocks. A European unemployment benefits scheme (EUBS) is one potential stabilisation mechanism, although other proposals for devising risk-sharing tools that could be deployed across the Economic and Monetary Union have surfaced over the years. This high-level conference will explore and compare the advantages and disadvantages of the various schemes entertained. Which one is best suited for the member countries of EMU? Which one holds out the greatest promise of reducing the risk of deep recession? Do such schemes inevitably lead to moral hazard or are there practical safeguards that can be built into their provisions to minimise this risk from materialising? Are any of these proposals politically feasible in the near term?

Brexit: What impact on member states?

Brexit was the defining event of 2016. It will impact the Union in many different ways. While the options available for the future relationship between Britain and the EU27 have been thoroughly discussed, significantly fewer details have emerged on the impact on specific member states.

Organised jointly by CEPS and ENEPRI (European Network of Economic Policy Research Institutes), this conference will explore the potential impact on different member states via presentations and panel debates with researchers and policymakers. The ensuing discussion should allow us to clearly distinguish between areas with common grounds in the negotiations from areas where opinions and policy stances are likely to differ across the EU27.
