Abstract [en]

Demographic ageing marks strategic orientations and public policies. It's a challenge to societies, public and private institutions and Welfare State. The goal of this study is to understand the local governance strategies to an ageing population and the role of the local in multilevel governance processes. A qualitative methodology it was followed that supports analysis and understanding of both local ageing policies. The samples are case studies of two contexts, Portugal and Sweden, respectively city councils of Lisbon and Nacka, where stakeholders were interviewed. Different concepts and visions influence local ageing policies. Vertical coordination is easier to follow in Portugal, but without concrete laws, and in Sweden, horizontal coordination is emphasized between providers and municipalities. Local public intervention in ageing seeks renewed actions and this study allows to conclude that a perfect local policy doesn't exist. However in many aspects, can be complementary.
