Haverland, Markus. (2001) "The impact of Europe: The (once) unlikely case of old age pensions". In: UNSPECIFIED, Madison, Wisconsin. (Unpublished)
The paper ties into the debate on the impact of the European Union on national policies. It focuses on the relatively under-explored sector of old age income security. Four developments are analysed: (1) from public to private pensions, (2) from unfunded to funded pensions, (3) from defined benefit to defined contributions, and (4) from 'draconian' regulation to 'prudent men' regulation. Based on a preliminary analysis I argue that these current trends in old-age income security sector are at least partly shaped by European integration, sometimes in conjunction with economic and financial internationalisation. I also claim that the current developments may result in more EU influence in the future.
