Calls for Papers

Deadline: 24/02/2019
Gender inequality in health and survival continues to be one of the most important research areas of our times. Biology, lifestyle behaviors, and social characteristics have all been shown to play important roles in explaining gender gaps in survival and health. However, gender differences in health and longevity are more complex than this simple statement suggests. To what extent is the male-female health-survival paradox generalizable to various measures of health, at different stages of the life course and across cohorts, geographic settings, and subgroups?

European welfare states have seen major transformations of their social security systems over the past decades. In addition to “old” risks such as unemployment and sickness, “new” social risks have emerged. Changing gender roles and family behaviour have furthermore reconfigured social risks along the gender lines. At the same time, retrenchment of public welfare provision has increased the risks of old-age poverty for future generations of retirees. [...]
