This seminar proceedings examines whether the current designs of social protection systems in OECD societies are well‐suited to contemporary life‐course realities. It looks in detail at recent policy developments in OECD countries to develop more flexible time‐based social policies, as well as related issues, such as asset‐based welfare programmes, as well as policies to encourage redistribution of income and/or time over the life course and how these might be structured most effectively.
