Future of Age,Global Ageing

Thursday, 30th June 2016; 14:15 (for a 14:30 start) – 16:30; House of Lords

We are delighted to be holding the launch of a provocative new exploration of public service provision, the welfare state and democratic governance in the 21st century.

‘The future of the UK welfare state’, our new landmark publication, supported by Munich Re, will be launched on Thursday 30th June 2016. To mark the launch we are inviting parliamentarians, policy makers, academics and members of the press to the House of Lords to hear some of our contributors provide a brief outline of their essays.

As a futures organisation focussed on some of the biggest challenges facing Government and society in the context of demographic change, the ILC-UK is proud to launch this examination of such key policy challenges as the housing market in an ageing population, education in the 21st century, creating a sustainable welfare system and adapting to fundamental shifts in the labour market.

Speakers for this event include:

  • Ben Franklin, Head of Economics of Ageing, ILC-UK
  • Prof. Elsa Fornero, Chair of Economics, University of Turin
  • George Magnus, Senior Independent economic adviser to UBS, and Associate of the China Centre of Oxford University
