Abstract

This chapter maps the different conditions and strategies in place in the four case study countries: political consensus, reduced union impact, technical blurring, grandfathering, response to a crisis, independent commissions, packaging and existing context. Being able to adopt pensionable age reforms appears to require a certain number of supportive conditions to be in place, and, in addition, that these should be mutually reinforcing. It concludes that when striving for success in pension reforms, policymakers should ensure that the following boxes are ticked: objectivity, coherence, complexity and consensus.
