Against a background of population ageing, policy makers in the majority of industrialised countries are developing policies aimed at extending working life and promoting the benefits of employing older workers. This report reviews developments in several countries and offers recommendations for public policy.Based on a review of recent literature and interviews with experts in Australia, Finland, Germany, Japan, The Netherlands and the USA, this report will be invaluable reading for policy makers, practitioners and campaigners.Transitions after 50 seriesPeople are living longer, yet increasingly are leaving working life well before the state retirement age. The Joseph Rowntree Fountain programme, Transitions after 50, explores people's experiences, decisions and constraints as they pass from active labour market participation in their middle years towards a new identity in later life. Reports in this series look in particular at issues about work, income and activities beyond work during this period of transition.For other titles in this series, please follow the series link from the main catalogue page.
