Details concerning the Conference subject-matter

In the context of EUROFOR cooperation, a scientific conference will
take place in Majorca from 16 April to 19 April 1998 on the subject of
"Elderly Immigrants and the European Welfare States".  In addition to
the keynote speakers and other colleagues, young researchers are
expected to report on their scholarly activities.

The Conference is to discuss a topic that has only been given
scholarly and political attention in the last few years: the situation of
elderly immigrants in Europe. After 40 years of continuous migration to
Western Europe, the difficulties in catering for and integrating elderly
immigrants are growing in the European Union.

Neither government social security structures nor institutions have
taken the elderly migrants into consideration as a group up to now.
It is in the Anglo-Saxon countries that research on the subject is most
advanced. Further study of the situation of elderly immigrants and of
their integration in the system of retirement pensions is needed, and
in the process the European social security systems must be
discussed as well.

This Conference is to be the starting-point for a comparative
Europe-wide project dealing with the situation of elderly immigrants.
