The work force in Europe is ageing and in many countries the number of people available to the labour market is shrinking. Anticipating demographic changes, many European states have increased official pension entitlement age, some countries by ten years of life. Prospectively, working lives of the work force will be extended; but still today, many people leave employment long before reaching official retirement age. What are the reasons for this? And how can we capture this – in research, in organisations and on the (inter-)national level? A conceptual framework on the determinants of work participation will be presented and discussed under the assumption that causation of work participation in advanced working age is under-researched and that current research usually is focussed on single or very few domains only and therefore lacks a “broad view” capturing the complexity of employment participation.
