Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Overzicht

In this two-week programme, we will explore the interdsicplinary and intercultural dynamics of ageing to better understand our inevitable global, intergenerational, future.

This interdisciplinary program will address important questions: what are the implications of demographic transition for an ageing population? How do governments, civil society, business and households deal with the risks of old age poverty in various regions of the world? What are the specific needs of older people and how do we care for them? In what way is the intergenerational contract under threat regarding social security and care?

By the end of the program, students will have an in-depth overview of global ageing and regional trends in relation to socio-economic, political, and cultural responses. The first braod overview of teh first week will be completmented by a week of specific thematic case studies on technology, housing, health and long-term care, financial literacy, and micropensions. These topics cut across regional debates and provide important moments and spaces for reflection.
Students will also be introduced to basic methodology – from interview techniques and developing questionnaires, to the global institutional framework of the UN, and new technology – as well as "mobile money" and morphing practices, and the principles of the Blue Zones around the world.
