What policies are needed for an inclusive society?

SHARE released a new book on “Ageing in Europe – Supporting Policies for an Inclusive Society” which was presented on 29 October in Brussels.

The book presents evidence on how to reinforce social and economic inclusion in spite of population ageing.

SHARE, the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe, whose first wave of data was collected in 2004, is the first study to examine the different ways in which people aged 50 and older live in twenty European countries from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean and in Israel.

Ever since the first wave, SHARE has published a book presenting the first results from every new wave. Each book has a title which relates to contemporary social challenges faced by European societies.

CESSDA was invited to attend the event and subsequently prepared an article presenting some of the key findings from the Wave 5 of SHARE.
