 Pensions: The European Debate

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the policy directions of pension reform in the EU. Discussions taking place at the European level propose incremental changes rather than radical reform, with attempts being made to reconcile apparently contradictory objectives (collective solidarity and market forces). This in turn, touches on the close link between the problem of pensions and employment strategies.

Keywords: pension reform policy; European Union; single market; economic stability; monetary stability
