In the IWSEA, we consider both the economic dimension and the social dynamics of ageing societies. The main theme of the 8th edition is Social Exclusion and Ageing.

Social exclusion is a complex process that embraces different domains. In addition to economic exclusion, it includes lack or denial of resources, rights, goods and services that are essential to the participation of a person in society, namely at the social, cultural and political levels. How social exclusion affects people can vary throughout their life course, with aspects that are particularly felt in old age. Also, disadvantages tend to accumulate over time and reinforce each other. We invite the submission of theoretical, empirical and policy papers exploring the intersection of ageing and social exclusion.

Relevant topics on this theme include but are not limited to:

  • Causes and consequences of social exclusion in old age
  • Social exclusion and key transitions along the life-course
  • Efficacy of policies to combat social exclusion
  • Social exclusion in low-and middle-income countries
  • Gender and social exclusion in late life
  • Exclusionary mechanisms affecting minority groups
  • Social exclusion and the digital divide
  • Comparative studies on exclusion in old-age

We also welcome papers on other topics in the field of the economics of ageing.

A selection of the papers presented at the workshop will (assuming successful completion of the peer-reviewing process) be published in a special issue of the Journal of the Economics of Ageing (

Proposals containing the title, name(s) of author(s), institutional affiliation(s) and an extended abstract (2-3 pages) in English should be submitted online ( the 15th May 2023.
