Pensions are hot. All developed countries have pension systems. Nevertheless, many pensioners faced dramatic pension drops in recent years. And young people doubt whether they will ever receive a substantial pension. Do solid pension systems exist somewhere in the world?
This 1-week summer course intends to fuel our thinking for the future. We will discuss reports of Mercer (Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index), the OECD (Pensions at a Glance) and the EU (Pensions Adequacy Report) on the quality of pension systems in various countries.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Identify, explain and analyze the main international sources on the quality of pension systems in various countries;
- Interpret and reflect from a comparative perspective on the various principles for a good pension design;
- Compare and comment on the ways countries deal with pension schemes and their pension reform plans.
