By Marcus Kasten

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Soziologie - regulate, word: 2,3, Universität Kassel (Fachbereich 05), Veranstaltung: Neue Spaltungslinien in der alternden Gesellschaft, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Ende des letzten, Anfang dieses Jahrtausends battle der Generationenkonflikt bzw. der „Kampf der Generationen“ stark in der öffentlichen, medialen und politischen Diskussion vertreten. Zwischenzeitlich wurde verbal abgerüstet und die Diskussion zu diesem Thema ist abgeflacht, auch weil es keine wissenschaftlich belegbaren Daten für einen Generationenkonflikt gegebenen hat.
Die Grundlage dieser Diskussion vollzieht sich aber weiterhin: Die Gesellschaft altert und die Geburtenrate bleibt auf einem konstant niedrigen Niveau, kurz: der demographische Wandel vollzieht sich.
Die zentrale Frage dabei ist: was once bedeutet das? Und für wen?
In den Fokus der politischen Debatte sind die sozialen Sicherungssysteme wie Rente, Krankenversicherung und Pflege gerückt. In allen Bereichen hat es bereits Reformen gegeben, um die Folgen des demografischen Wandels für diese Sicherungssysteme abzufedern und sie auch künftig bezahlbar zu halten.
Trotzdem sind weitere Reformen nötig, wenn guy dem politischen Betrieb glauben möchte. Vor dem Hintergrund des demografischen Wandels möchte ich daher untersuchen, was once der wissenschaftliche Betrieb überhaupt zu den Folgen der gesellschaftlichen Alterung für die sozialen Sicherungssysteme sagt und wo er noch Reformbedarf sieht.
