The Politics of Ageing

when 17 July 2018 - 1 August 2018
language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 4 ECTS
fee EUR 1200

Ageing is an urgent topic for all generations. Every year, the average life expectancy worldwide increases, and the number of children is decreasing. Due to this combination and growing urbanization and migration, family support is becoming an increasing burden. The traditional family support system crumbles rapidly. Who will pay the expenses of the next older generation? Who will take care of these older men and women and how will we integrate this care into policy, and everyday life? How can we unpack this complex interdisciplinary and intercultural topic to ensure a proper future for all ages?
