Abstract:Europe is going through a demographic renewal. While the life expectancy is increasing, the fertility and mortality rates are decreasing, resulting in the phenomenon of the aging of Europe. In order to tackle this problem, several attempts are possible. This thesis is examining the incentives taken by the Spanish government in order to handle an aged population. The research question under investigation is trying to find out; to what extent the Spanish case can be useful for other European countries. By analyzing both qualitative data and statistical indicators, an attempt will be given to answer the before mentioned question. As a concluding remark it can be said, that only immigration will not solve the problem of an aging population, rather a combination of both liberal immigration policies and reformed welfare policies might be able to deal with the aging of Europe
