WELCOME TO THE DAISIE CONFERENCE
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Against the background of an ageing population, questions of extended working life have been placed high on the global political agenda. At the same time, growing research indicates that employment opportunities and working conditions for seniors are often at odds with these political initiatives and that there are increasing inequalities associated with the normative expectations associated with ageing at work. Unequal conditions in terms of health, involvement in informal care and the age climate of different workplaces are examples of factors that risk creating accumulated inequalities in an extended working life.
Based on analysis of the gendered impacts of policies aimed at extended working life and comparisons of three contrasting occupations (health, transport, financial services) in the Czech Republic, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK, the NORFACE DIAL (Dynamics of Inequality Across the Life Course: Structures and Processes) project Dynamics of Accumulated Inequalities for Seniors in Employment (DAISIE) has focused on issues such as the current working conditions of the 50+ group across countries and occupations, the combined effect of employment histories, family life events and intergenerational care services on the dynamics of inequality in later life.
This final conference is an opportunity for members of the DAISIE project and colleagues from the broader international research community to present papers in relation to work in later life and accumulated inequalities.
The conference is free of charge, but registration is mandatory in order to receive the conference link.
