Abstract

One of the more tangible expressions of this apparent conflict between generations in ageing societies has been the widespread emergence at the margins of political systems in both Western and Eastern Europe of pensioners and retirees parties. Such appear are at first examination a fringe phenomenon of little interest. However, this chapters argue, they merit more careful examination both because they are more widespread and peristent than other localized, ephemeral minor party phenomena and because ageing populations suggest that, prima faciae, such ‘grey’ parties will be able to draw on a growing reservoir of potential voters
