From Separated Life Phases to Interrelated Life Risks: A life‐course approach to social policy
Abstract:New economic and social life risks have emerged and may affect both the income and the management of time of the households or of the individuals requiring them to shift money and/or time during the life course. These new risks are an important challenge for social policy makers. Changes in the nature of social risks and in the interactions between them strongly suggest that new social policies should be considered and evaluated in order to respond to these developing trends more effectively. This introductory chapter presents the main messages that emerged during the seminar "Life Risks, Life Course and Social Policy" which brought together a number of experts to respond to these new key social policy questions.
