Intergenerational Relations : European Perspectives in Family and Society, Hardback Book

Intergenerational Relations : European Perspectives in Family and Society Hardback

Edited by Isabelle Albert, Dieter Ferring



Population ageing today affects most industrialised countries, and it will have an impact on many facets of the social system.

Intergenerational relationships will play a key role in dealing with the demographical and societal change.

This book provides innovative views in the multidisciplinary research field of intergenerational family relations in society, with a focus on Europe.

Different, but complementary, perspectives are integrated in one volume bringing together international scholars from sociology, psychology and economics.

The book's chapters are grouped into three thematic sections which cover conceptual issues, multigenerational and cross-cultural perspectives, as well as applied issues.

Implications for research, policy and practice are addressed and suggestions for future directions are discussed.

By raising recent discussions on controversial issues, this book will stimulate the current discourse at various levels.

Intergenerational relations in society and family will be equally interesting for researchers, advanced-level students and stakeholders in the fields of social policy, population ageing and intergenerational family relationships.
