Upcoming event: LSE/TAEN seminar on Ageing, Older Workers and Migration

by on March 22, 2017

We have blogged recently on a couple of stories about the possible effects of new immigration policies on both sides of the Atlantic on particular industries (like hospitality) with a focus on younger and older workers. This is just one aspect of the post-Brexit world that we’re grappling with.

So the next LSE/TAEN seminar may be of interest to readers of this blog. The topic will be Ageing, Older Workers and Migration.  This promises to explore some of the issues that will arise after triggering article 50. This might include pension benefits, movement of people, and the ‘portability’ of social rights.

The seminar will be held on Thursday 27 April 2017 from 2 to 5pm in the Graham Wallace Room, 5th floor, Old Building, London School of Economics, Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE.

The speakers will be Professor Robert Holzmann and Dr Martin Hyde

  • Robert Holzmann is currently honorary professor at the University of Malaya (Kuala Lumpour) and at the University of New South Wales (Sydney). His work focuses on several issues relating to ageing, the labour market and social protection.
  • Dr. Martin Hyde is Associate Professor in Gerontology at Swansea University, Centre for Innovative Ageing. His work focuses on different issues including the quality of life in early old age, life course perspectives and ageing and globalisation.
