Ageing and the Public Service in Italy
Abstract:Italy faces some of the most difficult demographic challenges of all OECD member countries, with disadvantageous aging trends across the full range of indicators: increasing proportion of older workers, increasing number of pensioners, declining birth rates. Furthermore, the ageing process presents short‐term challenges for Italy, which will then continue until 2050. However, political recognition of this looming demographic crisis has come only recently. As a consequence, the Italian public sector ageing strategy remains minimalist, particularly relative to the magnitude of the problem.
