Social Services, Welfare State and Places. The restructuring of social services in Europe and its impacts on social and territorial cohesion and governance. (2011-15). COST - European Cooperation in Science and Technology

Since the 1990s, social services have undergone major restructuring processes and cuts throughout Europe by undergoing commoditization processes with the outsourcing of services to private and third sector suppliers. The recent economic crisis has refocused the interest of social services on the European agenda. This Action has put in contact the institutions working on these issues in the different European States to address five perspectives: cost / efficiency, democratic governance, social and territorial cohesion, work and gender.

Ageism can be synthesized as the social construction, often negative, of the aging process. Ageism has negative consequences for individuals, their families and the society itself. The objectives of Ageism are to make visible the behavior based on values of age discrimination and to allow older people to develop their full potential. This is carried out through interdisciplinary work and establishing international collaborations between civil society, administrations and the elderly.
