This multi-disciplinary cross-faculty workshop aims to bring together expertise from across UCL and generate a research agenda/new collaborations for research on age inequalities.

Whilst there is a large literature on inequalities by social class, gender and geography there has been little empirical research on inequalities by age.  General recommendations that presently predominate in ageing policies, whether medical, social or economic are often based on assumptions, and extrapolations from research in other groups. With demographic changes ageing is a highly topical issue, with much debate about how we as a society will cope with rising numbers of older people and limited resources. There is a need to define an agenda for research that both seeks to identify where the greatest age inequalities are arising now and how these may be addressed, and to consider the impact of demographic changes on age inequalities over the coming decades and beyond.

This half-day workshop aims to define a potential research agenda and bring together key interested researchers/experts in UCL to take this agenda forward, and develop ideas for collaborations and funding.
