Event description

Description

The rapidly ageing population in Asia necessitates the provision of social security for larger numbers of older people who are living longer than in the past, and balancing the interests of different generations. Although nations in the region each have unique characteristics, there are overall trends associated with population ageing, which raise implications that extend across most nations in Asia. An analysis of the expansion of the welfare state for older people across the region reveals the tensions between state and family, and between younger and older generations.

Thomas Klassen is a Professor in the School of Public Policy and Administration at York University, Canada.

Co-hosted with the John Richards Initiative, La Trobe University.
