We started in 2008 with the first generation of ten fellows covering the topic of “Ensuring Income Security and Welfare in Old Age”. Then, the focus lay on the demographic changes in the CEE region. We closely cooperate with the World Ageing and Demographic Forum at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. The fellows presented their papers and research results at the 6th World & Ageing Generations Congress in 2010.
The topic of the second generation focuses on “Migration and its effects on demographic and economic development in Central and Eastern Europe”, analysing social change processes. For the first time, a group of researchers submitted the topic of Roma Migration, which proved a necessity of highlighting this aspect. As a result, we decided to create a research group with this focus.
The topic of the third generation focuses on “Labour Markets and Emplyoment in Central and Eastern Europe”
After four cycles we closed with the topic of “Diasporas, nation states and mainstream societes in Central and Eastern Europe”. More than 50 researchers contribute with their papers. Have a look at our database here.
