The impact of ageing for social and political processes in the Netherlands

Onderzoeksoutput: Hoofdstuk in boek/boekdeelHoofdstukWetenschappelijk


Ageing is changing society. In "Reinventing the welfare state" the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy (CPB) observes that welfare state institutions are slow to adapt to new realities. The new reality is that more people are ready, willing and able to manage the risks they encounter in life and to support others in case of catastrophic events. People invest in more than one type of capital to control risks. A welfare system that takes advantage of that new reality by providing a public infrastructure for life-course risk management involving different types of capital is a sustainable system. It requires insight into the complementary nature of th welfare state, civil society and social network in the assurance of welfare and wellbeing.
