Dominic Abrams, Melanie Vauclair, Luisa Lima and Sibila Marques presented at a meeting of the Instituto do Envelhecimento (24th October). Dominic focused on ageism in the UK based on findings from analyses of the 'attitudes to age' module in the European Social Survey (ESS); while Melanie presented key findings from the DWP report 'Predictors of Attitudes to Age across Europe', which attempts to explain why European countries differ in their attitudes to age and experiences of ageism. Luisa also spoke on the ESS findings and Sibila on evidence for ageism in health, education, media, employment and communities, both focusing on Portugal.


This was also an opportunity for seven members of the EURAGE group to meet in Lisbon and discuss future research projects and the development of current projects.
