Sociologist and Chairman of the Foundation’s Scientific Council

Serge Guérin was previously Editor-in-Chief of Réciproques, a research journal on proximology. He has also worked with the French Minister Michèle Delaunay on the introduction of a law to ensure respite for close care assistants. With Pierre-Henri Tavoillot, philosopher, he has helped to dispel the myth of a generational war, which pits the modern but poor youth against wealthy old has-beens, proving that, quite to the contrary, intergenerational ties are becoming stronger in today’s society. He chairs the Scientific Committee of the Korian Foundation for Ageing Well.

Sociologist Serge Guérin is an expert on the matters of ageing and the rise of a silver society. He is a lecturer at the INSEEC group of business schools, and also teaches a Master’s course on Gerontology Policy at Sciences Po Paris. Formerly Editor-in-Chief of the Réciproques journal, he is regularly featured in the business press such as Management et Avenir, Écologie et Politique and senior readership publications Notre Temps and Géroscopie Magazine. He has written over twenty books on issues concerning the older generation, and has actively contributed to an equity appeal for carers in a bid to grant special rights to unpaid care assistants.
