Ageing and Migration Status: Book Club
Event Type:
30 September 2021
the second Ageing and Migration webinar. It will be held on 30 September from 11 to 12 British Summer Time. In the second webinar discussion on ageing and migration, we will be joined by Marion Repetti, Professor of Social Work at HES-SO Valais-Wallis who has recently co-edited a Springer book on ageing and migration in a global context. The book explores the lived experiences of older immigrants in community engagement, housing, retirement and work and poses important questions and challenges to policymakers in different welfare states around the world. Marion will talk about the book and some of the big challenges facing societies within a context of global ageing. I will channel his inner Oprah to chair a discussion with Marion. Please come along and share your questions, thoughts, and perspectives. You can find information about the book here: Repetti, M., Calasanti, T. & Phillipson, C. (Eds) (2021). Ageing and Migration in a Global Context: Challenges for Welfare States. Cham: Springer. And don't forget to lean on your university or nearest library to purchase a copy of the book. PS: If you weren't able to join the July discussion, you can find the recording of it here: Info on the network: The Universities of Hull, Osnabrück and Manchester would like to invite you to a webinar discussion to launch a Research Topic with Frontiers in Psychology. The Research Topic is entitled Ageing and Migration Status: Intersectional Forms of Discrimination and Exclusion. Our aim is to start a conversation between academics, policy makers, community groups about the lived experiences of older immigrants; the barriers which they face in the worlds of work, community, health and housing (e.g., due to discrimination) as well as ways for dealing with these challenges. We are seeking to encourage an international and cross-disciplinary discussion on the topic which includes not just academics but also community organisers, policymakers, those who represent and support migrant communities, and most importantly, older immigrants themselves. Please join us and circulate this invitation to others who may be interested. You can find the Research Topic here: We are hoping that this webinar will complement the Research Topic and will be a periodic event.
