"Ageing across Borders: Care, Generations, Citizenship"

Workshops, conferences 2018
As the world’s population grows older, how do people experience ageing in global, mobile and transnational contexts? This workshop hosted by the ‘Ageing in a Time of Mobility’ research group at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity aims to shed light on how ageing and migration intersect to jointly shape new social and cultural transformations. Moving beyond looking at ‘older age’ and ‘ageing’ in isolation, the workshop will explore how care and intergenerational relationships are newly configured in transnational contexts; how new forms and practices of citizenship, community and belonging emerge on different scales; but also how borders and boundaries continue to shape or constrain experiences of mobility in later life in unequal ways.
