    Maria Cruz-Saco, PhD is Professor of Economics at Connecticut College. She has been a frequent consultant to the Inter American Development Bank and the US Agency for International Development regarding social security, pension, and insurance programs in Guatemala and Peru.

    Sergei Zelenev is an international expert on social policy and a former head of the Social Integration Branch in the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN/DESA). He has written widely in the areas of social policy, social inclusion, economic development, ageing, and family and directed numerous UN/DESA studies on key policy issues.

    This volume analyzes intergenerational solidarity from diverse interdisciplinary angles within the social sciences. It provides analytical tools to advance research and documents how societies are adjusting to major changes that affect the core of the social fabric. With a focus on the areas of youth, family and ageing, contributions seek to advance the understanding and promotion of intergenerational solidarity. In addition, the authors propose to mainstream intergenerational solidarity in the design of social policies through the adoption of an intergenerational perspective or lens to policy making that can help attain a stable, just and harmonious society for all ages.
