AGE is part of the Advisory Board of the research project ‘Closing gaps in European social citizenship’ (EUROSHIP), which aims at assessing gaps in social protection across Europe, putting an emphasis on vulnerable populations and gender gaps. It has a particular focus on minimum income schemes and older persons with care needs, as well as on seven countries: Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom.
The project has been running since 2020 and has already delivered a couple of working papers on a number of topics of interest to our work:
- The institutional logics of minimum income schemes in seven European countries
- Developments in minimum income benefits levels in Europe
- Alternative approaches to the study of poverty and social exclusion in Europe
Digitalisation and social protection:
- Comparing the digital transformation of welfare delivery in Europe
- EU Citizens’ attitudes to digitalisation and the use of digital public services
