This chapter reviews the reforms that were adopted in eight western European countries. It argues that the measures that were adopted depend on the institutional structure of the pension system that was inherited by the countries from the post- and pre-war years. The chapter begins with an overview of the changes to the labour market that have occurred since the end of the trente glorieuses, which was a period of thirty years marked by fast economic growth, rising wages, etc. It is followed by a discussion of how different pension systems deal with the new forms of employment. The chapter ends with a section on the key measures that the eight countries have adopted to deal with certain issues.

Keywords:   reforms, western Europe, institutional structure, pension system, labour market, trente glorieuses, key measures
