Determinants of generational conflict in ageing populations. A comparison of Germany and Japan.

One of the most controversially discussed topics in demographic ageing is the questions to what extent this trend leads to generational conflict. My dissertation investigates possible determinants for conflict between old and young persons in ageing societies. My test cases are Germany and Japan, two pioneers of ageing. Applying quantitative methods to the relevant theoretic literature, I focus on three societal spheres, the labour market, the welfare state and the family. While I look at the micro level in two of the three parts of my dissertation, the third part uses macro level data.
