Public Sector Economics
2022 Conference
Population ageing is gradually becoming one of the most important challenges facing governments globally. Many countries are unprepared for its vast social and economic implications. As governments around the world start to grasp that population ageing will put increased financial pressure on old-age support systems, sound research is needed to guide policy development. The long-term care (LTC) sector, which has proven very vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic, will be under particularly large strain in the forthcoming years. 


To discuss these issues among international experts, the Institute of Public Finance and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung are organizing the annual virtual Public Sector Economics 2022 Conference – Ageing and Long-Term Care to be held on October 21, 2022. In case of a favourable epidemiological situation, the organizers will consider an in-person conference.


The goal of the conference is to analyse the current state of LTC around the world and provide new policy options for tackling challenges that population ageing will bring to LTC. We invite submissions of critical reviews, analytical and policy studies on various aspects of LTC. Researchers from economics, finance, demographics, sociology, political science, government, law and health sciences are encouraged to submit papers.


Keynote lectures will be given by Francesca Colombo (Head of the Health Division at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), Joan Costa-i-Font (Associate Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science) and George Leeson (Professorial Fellow at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, University of Oxford).
