Award-winning Dissertation on Inclusion
For her dissertation, Dr. Isabella Bertmann, former doctoral student at the Institute, received the Bavarian "Kulturpreis". The award is presented by Bayern AG and the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and Art for outstanding artistic and scientific achievements. For her doctoral thesis entitled "Taking Well-Being and Quality of Life for Granted?", Bertmann conducted a field study on social security and inclusion of people with disabilities in South Africa. On the basis of qualitative interviews with those affected as well as with local experts in the fields of disability and social policy, her work provides insight into the current discourse on inclusive social protection systems.
Expert Opinion on Demand Planning
Timely access to medical care is not available in all regions and at all times. This is one of many results of the expert opinion on the further development of demand planning, which was prepared by the Institute's social law department together with other scientific institutions. The legal part concentrates on the investigation of the constitutional requirements and the legal evaluation of options for further development. The Federal Joint Committee commissioned the report.
Summary of expert report
Stronger Social Protection for Workers in the 21st Century
Together with the Université Rennes 1, the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy has investigated whether the social protection systems in Europe are flexible enough to take account of changing labour market conditions and people's increasingly variable careers. The results have now been published in the book "Employment Biographies and Social Protection in Europe". Difficulties exist particularly with regard to the reintegration of older workers into working life - which is problematic given the continuing trend towards increasing working lives. The trilingual contributions (German, English and French) focus on France and Germany - two states with a conservative security model that is almost exclusively linked to the status of employment. Moreover, Norway and the Netherlands provide insights into key reform trends.
Prof. Börsch-Supan Member of New Pension Commission
The Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has appointed Prof. Axel Börsch-Supan, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy, as pension expert in the new pension commission. The Commission's aim is to find ways of securing and developing pension systems in a sustainable manner from 2025 onwards, thereby laying the foundation for a new generational contract.
