A Proposed Methodology: Understanding the Later Life Financial Wellbeing of UK BME Groups

Tuesday 7 May 2024 (13:00-14:00)
chasm seminar

An Online CHASM Seminar with speaker Pauline Gleadle, Visiting Professor, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, at the Open University

In this seminar, Pauline will draw on these varied interests to propose a qualitative methodology for exploring the later life financial position of different ethnic minorities within the UK. She argues that this is called for, given that much of the academic literature to date on UK BME groups’ saving via pensions fails to distinguish adequately between these different communities and their personal financial provision for later life. Importantly, such greater understanding has potential implications for both national and local government policy across a range of areas which Pauline would like to discuss with you towards the end of her presentation.

Pauline Gleadle is a Critical Accountant in terms of her research background, but she also has wider-ranging interests across the social sciences more generally.
