Description

ILC-UK and Newcastle University are collaborating on two research to policy seminars. The second seminar will be held on Thursday 27th September and will look at intergenerational relations in challenging times.

Intergenerational Relations in Challenging Times
a
Research to Policy collaboration seminar from ILC- UK and Newcastle University

Thursday 27th September 2018
09:40 (for a 10:00 start) – 12:00

Debates around intergenerational relations, often framed in terms of conflict, exchange, solidarity and equity, have become a key feature of ageing societies. In the UK as in other countries, we are witnessing the emergence of discourses of generational conflict over political settlements and attempts to forge a new moral economy of welfare in economically straitened times. Increasingly, issues such as social care, employment, retirement, housing, welfare provision and pensions are crystallising around the concept of intergenerational equity. Yet, there is surprisingly little robust evidence to underpin these debates.

This seminar presents a range of perspectives on intergenerational relations, seeking to stimulate a debate that is better grounded in and informed by the available evidence. Confirmed speakers include Dr. Suzanne Moffatt, Reader in Social Gerontology, Institute of Health and Society, Newcastle University; Dr Josephine Wildman, Research Associate, Institute of Health and Society, Newcastle University; Fahmida Rahman, Researcher, The Resolution Foundation

This event in open to all, and we would encourage anyone with an interest to attend this accessible introduction to intergenerational relations.

Spaces for this event are limited.
