Short presentation

As a member of the "Aging Migrants, Labor Market Transitions and the Welfare State" project, in which I was previously engaged as a research assistant, I want to investigate how different retirement systems protect migrants as well as what this implies for the future of welfare regimes.

Keywords: migration comparative politics pensions welfare social protection
