Should pension or tax systems be pro-natalist?

CHAIRE HOOVER Louvain-La-Neuve

26 février 2019

9:30 - 17:00


D144, Place Montesquieu 3

Part of the SAS ARC Project and of the LISP3200 seminar

Convener: Axel Gosseries (Hoover Chair, UCLouvain, Philosophy)

Core issues to be discussed

  • Whether it is a good idea to adopt pro-natalist policies in European countries?
  • Whether pension systems are the appropriate means to contribute to this goal?
  • Whether we have evidence that such policies are actually able to contribute significantly to such goals?
  • Whether non-parents should receive lower retirement benefits than parents, or whether they should pay higher contributions to pension systems?
