Italian Forum 2017 - Panel III - Making Do What We Have?

The Italian Society is delighted to invite you to the third panel of this year's Italian Forum:
Italian Forum 2017
No Country for Young Men?
The Intergenerational Divide in Italy
Over the last decades, governments, private sectors and entire societies, have had to face the increasing pressures of ageing populations. An example that epitomises this phenomenon is Italy, a country that in terms of age is second only to Japan. These new population dynamics increase pressure on labour markets, healthcare systems and pension schemes. In a forum spanning over three evenings, we will explore the effects of these trends on younger generations that witness record rates of unemployment, widespread emigration and above all unprecedented levels of disillusion towards the future. We will also address the challenges of reforming social welfare systems to make them more resilient to changing demographic landscapes.

The final evening will be devoted to the possible ways out from this new demographic trap. First, we will touch upon the innovative approaches young Italians are developing to reinvent their own future, and that of the country. Then, we will also look at the role governmental policies could play in fostering these innovations, and shaping demographic outcomes more broadly.
The suggested hashtag for the Italian Forum is #lseitalianforum.
We look forward to seeing you there,
