Public pensions and intra-EU mobility: an unfinished agenda
Cross-border mobility in the EU remains low. This paper looks at how differences in pension systems distort mobility.The authors distinguish between two ways in which national public pension systems can distort intra-EU movements of workers. First, each national pension system may display an inherent mobility bias. Second, mobility distortions may arise from differences between national pension systems. The conceptual framework presented in this paper can help to cut through the complexity of the issue in order to detect any systematic mobility bias.
