Module overview

The aim of this module is to (i) engage students in a critical debate on the transformations, challenges and potentials that ageing societies face and (ii) discuss the research methods, data and ethical implications involved in contemporary research of older people, population ageing and intergenerational relations. Thus the module will combine critical assessment of contemporary issues relevant to ageing societies, such as pensions, care or chronic disease, with discussion of the application of quantitative and qualitative research methods to researching older people.
