Introduction to the Special issue on Retirement incomes

Siobhan Austen () and Therese Jefferson

Australian Journal of Labour Economics (AJLE), 2007, vol. 10, issue 2, 59-60

Abstract: This edition showcases a number of peer-reviewed papers on the retirement incomes of Australian women. These papers were originally contributed to an Australian Social Science Academy (ASSA) workshop on the topic at the UNSW in December 2006. The workshop brought together academics, policy makers and post graduate students in a discussion of the gender impacts of Australian retirement income policy. It was motivated, in part, by previous research in the field, which had highlighted how the shift in emphasis towards occupational superannuation increases the economic vulnerability of women in retirement. The aim was to update this research knowledge and discuss policy initiatives that could address any inequities.
