Senior Policy in Hungary, Poland and Russia | New Publication

Senior Policy in Hungary, Poland and Russia by Bogusława Urbaniak, Yaroslava Evseeva, László Patyán.

The writing of this monograph was inspired by discussions at the Joint Workshop of the EAST Research Network on ‘Silver Economy in Central and Eastern Europe’, which was held at the Faculty of Economics and Sociology, University of Łódź in June 2018.

The monograph considers the notion and scope of senior policy vis-à-vis similar policies, such as social policy on ageing, social policy on old age, and social policy on the elderly. Although retirement policy is unrelated to senior policy, it is also covered in the monograph because of its influence on the financial situation and well-being of the elderly and older adults. A brief review of the demographic situation and main population trends in EU-28 countries is followed by a presentation of senior policies in Hungary, Poland and Russia, and the impact of their retirement policies on the economic situation of older people.
