Publication year: 2010

Elisa Baroni

This paper aims to study the theoretical linkages between the design of the pension system and that of the labor market and their interplay in determining poverty outcomes in old age, particularly from a gender perspective. This is done through looking at effects of sharing parental leave equally, for which it can be concluded that the effects on pensioner’s welfare are not straightforward but involve other concurring events.
