"Migration, Ageing and Translocal Social Protection"

Events 2024
In a global context of population ageing, migration and forced displacement, questions of transnational and translocal social protection remain paramount.

Cutting across these different spaces are financial institutions and markets in promoting ideas and products around individualized future security. Piecing together these different forms of social protection is far from seamless and there are numerous inequalities that migrants and refugees confront in securing social protection and wellbeing, where some are eligible for formal support and others are excluded.
