Due to the financial and economic crisis state budgets are cut down, demographic changes lead to a situation in which the number of older people retiring exceeds the number of younger people entering the workforce: These developments put pension systems all over Europe to a serious test. Not only national governments, but also the European Institutions understood the importance of creating sustainable pension systems. While discussions mostly make a difference between employees, self-employed and civil servants, the specific situation of security personnel is often not dealt with.
The conference aims at bringing together representatives from professional associations as well as the security forces and governments to discuss the issue of pension systems for the personnel in the security sector. The conference will enable an exchange of information and best practises amongst participants on an issue of common concern. By addressing the security forces as a whole, challenges faced by personnel of the armed forces as well as of the police corps are addressed.

The conference is funded by the Visegrad Fund.
