Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


A selection of core outcomes of the EU-funded MIGAPE project (MInd the GAp in PEnsions), with participation of LISER for Luxembourg, has been embedded in the "2021 Pension adequacy joint report" prepared by the Social Protection Committee (SPC) and the European Commission (DG EMPL) recently endorsed by the EPSCO Council.
A substantial part of the gender pension gap observed today derives from the fact that in most EU countries, currently retired women had shorter careers and lower pay, relative to men, than women who are active now and who will retire in the coming decades. The MIGAPE project aims to uncover the consequences of women’s labour market outcomes on their future pensions. The project has produced projections of the gender pension gap for Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovenia and Portugal. For Luxembourg, the reports builds on the Dynamic Microsimulation Model MiDAS_LU.
