Nationale Rentenreformen und die Europäische Union: Entwicklungslinien und Einflusskanäle


  • Schmähl, Winfried


Ausgangspunkt des Beitrags ist zum einen die beträchtliche Rolle, die die europäische Ebene inzwischen für die Alterssicherungspolitik der Mitgliedsstaaten erlangt hat. Zum anderen zeigen sich in jüngerer Zeit verschiedene Entwicklungstendenzen in der Alterssicherungspolitik von Mitgliedsstaaten. Auf sechs dieser Tendenzen wird hingewiesen. Damit verbunden ist die Frage, ob über die europäische Ebene – auch angesichts der Erweiterung der EU und der in neuen Mitgliedsstaaten durchgeführten Reformen – Rückwirkungen auf die Entwicklung nationaler Alterssicherungssysteme erwachsen können. Im Zusammenhang damit steht auch die gestiegene Bedeutung von Wirtschafts- und Finanzministern sowie Finanzmarktakteuren in der Alterssicherungspolitik, die über die EU-Kanäle – auch die neue „offene Methode der Koordinierung“ – zusätzlich an Einfluss gewinnen.
