Ageing In A Global Context (Module)

Module description

This module aims to provide students with a critical understanding of demographic and ageing issues in the developing world. It will explore various, changing demographic processes across the developing world and their complex and dynamic implications for both individuals and societies in contemporary developing countries. Cross-national examples will be drawn from, for example, Middle East and North Africa, Asia and Latin America. The general topics will cover social policy for older people, poverty in old age, migration and its implications for older people, family care and intergenerational support, and the relationship between ageing and health.
