From Exclusion to Inclusion in Old Age : A Global Challenge, Paperback / softback Book

From Exclusion to Inclusion in Old Age : A Global Challenge Paperback / softback

Part of the Ageing and the Lifecourse Series series

Description

Evidence of widening inequalities in later life raises concerns about the ways in which older adults might experience forms of social exclusion.

Such concerns are evident in all societies as they seek to come to terms with the unprecedented ageing of their populations.

Taking a broad international perspective, this highly topical book casts light on patterns and processes that either place groups of older adults at risk of exclusion or are conducive to their inclusion.

Leading international experts challenge traditional understandings of exclusion in relation to ageing in From Exclusion to Inclusion in Old Age.

They also present new evidence of the interplay between social institutions, policy processes, personal resources and the contexts within which ageing individuals live to show how this shapes inclusion or exclusion in later life.

Dealing with topics such as globalisation, age discrimination and human rights, intergenerational relationships, poverty, and migration, the book is essential reading for anyone interested in ageing issues.
