This comprehensive Handbook explores the fundamental concepts surrounding the ageing-migration nexus. It is indispensable reading, presenting interdisciplinary research to investigate the unique experiences of older migrants, migrant eldercare workers and older people left behind.

Illustrating the various contemporary topics of study used to explore the connections between migration and ageing, the Handbook discusses how the research interest surrounding this interrelation has developed. Chapters explore two central factors that have influenced the ageing-migration nexus, namely population ageing and the globalisation of international migration. It aptly draws attention to conclusions drawn from already completed research ventures, before considering what research still needs to be conducted.

This innovative Handbook will be an ideal resource for researchers and practitioners aiming to familiarise themselves with the field. It will also be beneficial for more experienced researchers studying topics such as migration, welfare states and social gerontology, as well as academics looking to become more informed on the connections between migration and ageing.
