Generation and Life Course

The significance of life course stage and intergenerational relations for migration is important, with migration intersecting with individual life course transitions including growing up, building families and negotiating older age and associated challenges. COMPAS researchers have conducted a number of projects that explore the perspectives of different generations, including research on children, young people and older people, as well as explored the wider social ramifications of an ageing society through changing care requirements and their implications for migrant labour.
