Ageing and Migration in a Global Context: Challenges for Welfare States

Christopher Phillipson (Editor), Marion Repetti (Editor), Toni Calasanti (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The book brings together two major trends influencing economic and social life: population ageing on the one side, and migration on the other. Both have assumed increasing importance over the course of the 21st Century. The books provides an interdisciplinary perspective examining the challenges posed by these developments, highlighting as the well the impact of globalisation on social and economic inequalities. The book assesses different forms of support arising from the interaction between families and welfare states, and the need for reforms to provide the necessary support given the emergence of new forms of insecurity.
