WG 1: Existing knowledge and key themes
WG1 will map existing knowledge and identify critical themes for gender and older workers. Based on a preliminary review of the literature, these themes are likely to include health, caring, work-life trajectories, precarious employment, and the impact of legislation and policy.
WG 2: Analysis of Policies on Extended Working Life
WG2 will have a policy focus and will involve analyses of national ‘late work’ employment policies from (a) a gender perspective, (b) a life course perspective and (c) a health and well-being perspective.
WG 3: National and International Data
WG3 will identify and map national and international databases for people aged 50 and over. It will identify appropriate gender-sensitive measures and indicators for health and socio-economic wellbeing, or create novel measures through creative use of existing data.
