Ageing and Generational Dynamics

This programme aims to explore ageing across the life-course as well as its impact on the relationships between and within generations on both the familial and societal levels. Contextualised within the diverse realities of Africa, researchers focus amongst others on 1) discourses and realities of ageing and family /intergenerational relationships; 2) contemporary social and health care at the nexus of informal and formal care systems; and 3) trends in the inclusion/exclusion of generations in relation to each other and broader community and societal systems, and how older people negotiate these in terms of survival and citizenship.
