Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the interaction between demography and globalisation. It observes that population ageing has been a major factor influencing changes in intergenerational relations, and such a demographic shift is firmly located in broader social and economic developments, including processes associated with globalisation. It also examines how demographic shifts and globalisation are currently influencing the nature of intergenerational relations by linking those two issues together, and asks, are any new forms of contact and reciprocity across generations emerging within and beyond national boundaries?

Keywords: demography; globalisation; population ageing; intergenerational relations; demographic shifts; national boundaries
