In the NIDI theme group Work & Retirement there is a vacancy for a PhD position “Unpaid work around the retirement transition” (1,0 fte).
The experience of poverty during childhood is associated with poorer outcomes in terms of a child’s health, education, psycho-social wellbeing and socio-economic attainment in later life. Levels of children living in families struggling to make ends meet financially vary significantly across Europe.
Prof. dr. Ute Bültmann, professor of Work and Health at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) and also affiliated researcher at NIDI, has been awarded a Vici grant of EUR 1.5 million as part of the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (‘Vernieuwingsimpuls’) of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) to be spent on five years of research on her research theme "Today’s youth is tomorrow’s workforce".
Why do migrants choose the Netherlands? It's often thought that it is because of the high quality of the welfare state, but according to Helga de Valk, that’s a misconception. If it were true, then the Scandinavian countries would be the most popular, and migrants would never want to move on. The data does not support this scenario.
The Generations and Gender Programme (GGP), hosted by NiDi, marked the launch of the EUR 2 million Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme in Paris on Thursday, 26 January 2017. The three-year project aims to ensure long-term sustainability of GGP as a pan-European research infrastructure.
Migration can have profound consequences for family solidarity: when adult children leave the country of origin, ageing parents are deprived of potential care and support. This is especially disruptive in societies where families play an indispensable role in care and welfare provisions, as is the case in Eastern Europe.

Gender equality varies considerably across Europe. In many countries, there is still a strong belief in traditional gender roles. In Central and Eastern Europe, there is still a large proportion of the population that believes men shoud be prioritised for jobs when there is a scarcity of work. This is in stark contrast to Scandinavia and Western Europe where such views are much less common.
Friday 16 september 2016 Jaap Oude Mulders defended his Ph.D. thesis entiteld 'Organizations, managers, and the employment of older workers after retirement', a study assessing the employers' perspective on the employment of older workers, in particular in the period after some form of formal retirement.
In this special issue of DEMOS, bulletin on population and society, on the occasion of the European Population Conference 2016 articles on: How older workers struggle with a higher retirement age, NIDI scenarios for China, India and Nigeria, everything you always wanted to know about migrant families, the Generations and Gender Programme, and how important are parents for demographic behaviour of their children?
Until 2006 the Netherlands, like many other European countries, had a very strong “early retirement culture”. But that is history now. Early exit routes have been closed, and moreover, State Pension Age will increase to 67. Employees and employers need to change their perspectives on retirement in response to pension reforms that have taken place in quick succession.
United Nations projections assume that by the end of this century one third of the world population will live in India, China or Nigeria. While population growth in India will slow down and the population size of China will decline, population growth in Nigeria will accelerate. A new NIDI scenario projects less population growth in Nigeria and sharp population decline in China.
Migration is one of the major factors causing population change in Europe today. Understanding these changes requires insight in the life courses and family dynamics of migrants. NIDI researchers working on the project Families of migrant origin: a life course perspective (FaMiLife) have investigated the role of international migration on the lives of migrants and their families, both in origin and destination countries.
Inequality is on the rise across Western societies. A key aspect of inequality is that the life choices and life chances of individuals depend on their social background. This certainly is true for socio-economic outcomes, like how much you earn and the status of your job. But to what extent is this true for demographic behaviour, like leaving home, marriage, parenthood and divorce?
The Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) is a research infrastructure devoted to the study of the causes and consequences of demographic change, including changes in family dynamics, gender relations and relationships between generations. The GGP was founded in 2000 by a consortium of European institutes, statistical offices and universities under the umbrella of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).
Prof. dr. Kène Henkens, leader of the NIDI Work & retirement theme group and professor of retirement at the University of Groningen and University of Amsterdam, has been elected as member of the Academia Europaea. Academia Europaea is a European, non-governmental association acting as an Academy.
The Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) hosted at NIDI recently achieved the status of ESFRI (the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) Emerging Project.
Jaap Oude Mulders received the Junior Research Prize of Utrecht School of Economics (USE) for his paper "Organizations' ways of employing early retirees: the role of age-based HR policies". This paper has been published this year in The Gerontologist.
