The Ministry for Labour in Norway hosted a Peer Review 24 May in Oslo bringing together ministry officials, social partners and independent experts from twelve countries (Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Turkey).
The host country presented its Centre for Senior Policy (CSP), an organisation which aims to raise awareness of the importance of addressing demographic change and the critical contribution of older workers in the labour market. In order to do this, it carries out research, gathers and disseminates good practice and works directly with employers and employees themselves to develop active ageing strategies in the workplace. CSP builds on a joint recognition of the importance of active ageing by the social partners and government agencies and is run on a tripartite basis.
The main conclusions of the Peer Review can be found on the website of the Mutual Learning Programme.
