The book is unique and significant because the descriptions and arguments presented are based on the lived experience and hence provide deep insights into the complexity and dynamics of CALD older migrants. Key areas of exploration include social connectedness and inclusion, post-retirement economic activities, living arrangement and housing choice, practice of care, intergenerational exchange, and life satisfaction. A focus is placed on the diversity of ageing experience. Pathways of ageing are one of the key factors in investigating inter and intra-ethnic commonalities and disparities. The policy and research implications presented will appeal to policy makers, practitioners and researchersSummary: Chapter 1 The Research Gap: Globalisation, Migration and Ageing Society -- Chapter 2 Participation and Engagement: Dynamics of Social Life -- Chapter 3 Economic Situation -- Chapter 4 Housing and Location Choice -- Chapter 5 Independence and Care: In Search of an Effective Care Model -- Chapter 6 Intergenerational Transfer and Transnational Migration Decisions in Later Life -- Chapter 7 Life Satisfaction and Quality of Life -- Chapter 8 Conclusion and ImplicationsPPN: PPN: 1657438910Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-2-EES | ZDB-2-SEB | ZDB-2-SXEE
