Ageing and well-being in a globalizing world


The overarching objective of this proposal is to engage a multidisciplinary international network of well-established and early career researchers to address critically important demographic issues in India, UK and Netherlands, at the intersection of two themes within the India-Europe network call: ‘population, ageing and migration’ and ‘health and well-being’.

 Our objective is to examine ageing and well-being in a globalized world through the:

  • Comparison of demographic scenarios on ageing in India, UK and Netherlands, and linking them to social policy

  • Situation of ageing and exchange of care in the context of global migration, with a specific focus on the well-being of people ‘left behind’ 

  • Examination of the extent of intergenerational exchanges and the transmission of health vulnerabilities between generations, particularly in co-residential households

  • Application of a participatory research approach for knowledge transfer, by including relevant societal stakeholders.
