This edited collection takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the 'Active Ageing' agenda to enable readers to consider the implications of this phenomenon for the law, the workplace, and for working lives from a holistic perspective.

Challenges of Active Ageing brings together academics working throughout Europe from different disciplines including law, industrial relations, human resource management and occupational psychology to explore and debate the challenges of the 'Active Ageing' agenda for equality law and management practice.

Also including shorter contributions from law, human resource management, trade union and other practitioners, this book aims to fully reflect how organizations can adjust their practices to respond to the challenge of an aging population and extended working lives.
