Projektbeschreibung

The German Pension System in an International Comparison

Mitarbeiter in diesem Projekt:



MEA regularly receives inquiries from at home and abroad, requesting information on the economically relevant institutional features of the German pension system. In responding to these queries, MEA continually processes, systematizes and supplements the findings of its research work, and thus provides a comprehensive survey of pension reform activities in Germany. In particular, MEA seeks to make the complex details of reforms to the Riester plan [privately funded pension scheme subsidized by the government] and sustainability measures accessible to English-speaking scholars, and compares these with the reforms undertaken in other countries, notably Italy, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
