Pages: ii+126


With an ageing global population research on ageing, anti-ageing, governance and globalization has become increasingly important to deepen the understanding of the effect of gloabalisation on the ageing experience.

Ageing, Anti-ageing and Globalization provides a valuable multi-dimensional insight into ageing and its governance of value to including medical professionals, researchers, students and policy makers interested in ageing research.

This special issue explores the impact of transnational developments on the ageing experience and it  aims to stimulate conversation on issues such as the current structures for the governance of ageing and the tensions and limitations that emerge from such models, the impact of global demographic transitions across localities, the role of science and biotechnology on the social and cultural understanding of later life and the rise of anti-ageing cultures and interventions as strategies for the governance of the ageing experience.

This important collection will help facilitate the mobilization of academic and community engagement in ageing, anti-ageing, governance and globalisation. It is highly relevant to stakeholders involved with health and illness, health policy, promotion and practice, equity, social justice, social policy and social work within the context of ageing.
