Appel à projets


The Chair “Transitions démographiques, Transitions économiques” of the “Fondation du Risque – Institut Louis Bachelier” held by Professor Jean-Hervé Lorenzi is organizing the Second International Symposium:

Social Protection and Growth

The venue will be in Paris on the 9th and 10th of July 2018.

We are delighted to be issuing our public call for papers for the 2018 and Second Edition of the Symposium on “Social Protection and Growth“.

Whether and how social protection and welfare expenses have positive or negative effects on economics growth is still a debate among economists. Three elements give a new momentum to that question:
– Ageing economics and its consequences;
– Universal coverage policy as recommended by international agencies;
– Technologies provoking a shift in the labor market and authorizing higher productivity and efficiency in healthcare and social services.

Please take notice that the Chair is currently working on the following topics:

• Ageing, economic growth and welfare economics
• From housing wealth towards productive investment
• A new momentum for funded pensions systems and longevity bonds
• Healthcare finance for an aging population
• Training needs in an aging society

Abstracts should be submitted, before the 8th of June 2018 and other important dates are:
