UK Pension Reforms (1997-2015): Elite and Expert Interviews

Project: Central government, health and local authorities

Project Details


The pension reforms that were initiated in the early 2000s, and implemented during the 2010s, represent a milestone in the history of UK pensions provision.

This project is about bringing together existing information on these reforms, augmenting it with new material and content, and providing explanations and key lessons as to how and why the UK pensions system, unlike other areas of public policy, was successfully and sustainably reformed. This involves two main strands of research.

In the first part of this research, we are capturing what happened during the reform process through a series of video interviews with policymakers, experts, academics and stakeholders, about their recollections of the issues and events that contributed to the adoption and implementation of the reform.
