image of Modernising Social Policy for the New Life Course

This seminar proceedings examines whether the current designs of social protection systems in OECD societies are well-suited to contemporary life-course realities. It looks in detail at recent policy developments in OECD countries to develop more flexible time-based social policies, as well as related issues, such as asset-based welfare programmes, as well as policies to encourage redistribution of income and/or time over the life course and how these might be structured most effectively.



The Role and Effectiveness of Time Policies for Reconciliation of Care Responsibilities

The purpose of this chapter is to review the available evidence on the role and effectiveness of different approaches to time-based policies designed to assist individuals in their role as carers (children and dependent adults) by enabling them to adjust the distribution of their work-time across the life course.
