In den letzten Jahren hat jedoch eine veränderte Sichtweise in diesem Bereich eingesetzt, die spätestens seit der Einführung des Allgemeinen Gleichbehandlungsgesetzes 2006 (vgl.

Diese Arbeit widmet sich nun der Altersdiskriminierung im internationalen Vergleich und will aufzeigen, inwieweit internationale Unterschiede in der Wahrnehmung und dem Vorhandensein von Altersdiskriminierung existent sind. Es ist davon auszugehen, dass die verschiedenen Strukturen innerhalb der Länder und die damit einhergehenden normativen Einstellungen zur Arbeit und zum modify, Auswirkungen auf die Diskriminierung im regulate haben. Diese Arbeit untersucht nun die Altersdiskriminierung in Abhängigkeit der verschie-denen Wohlfahrtsstaatenregime nach Esping-Andersen, da zu erwarten ist, dass die auftre-tenden Unterschiede sich zumindest teilweise durch die Wohlfahrtsstaatentypologie erklären lassen. Hierfür wurden drei Länder ausgewählt, die exemplarisch für die drei Wohlfahrtsstaa-tenregmine stehen: Deutschland, welches das konservative, erwerbsarbeitsbezoge Regime darstellt, Großbritannien, das für das liberale Regime steht und Schweden, das in Esping-Andersens Typologie das sozialdemokratische Regime bzw. den institutionalisierten Wohl-fahrtsstaat vertritt.
Im Folgenden werden nun zunächst die begrifflichen und hypothetischen Grundlagen für diese Arbeit, die deduktiv vorgehen wird, gelegt, indem Theorien zur Altersdiskriminierung, die Rentensysteme und Arbeitsmarktstrukturen in den verschiedenen Ländern sowie die drei Wohlfahrtsstaatenregime kurz erklärt werden. Anschließend werden auf dieser Theorie-grundlage Hypothesen aufgestellt, die später anhand des eu Social Survey empirisch überprüft werden.
