Our Social Policy Specialist, Anh Tran, has gathered data from a range of sources to provide a snapshot of the world’s pension systems in terms of their ability to guarantee the old age population a minimum pension. This research is grounded in her work on social protection policy from an inclusive citizenship approach. She argues that States must recognise all citizens’ contributions to society, even if labour markets and economies fail to recognise them. With the Minimum Income in Old Age (MIOA) Index, she aims to provide a tool for knowledge sharing, and calls upon governments – with the support of international agencies – to guarantee all citizens access to a minimum income in old age.
