Age-related migration consequences

Migration is a life-changing process at any age in the life course, but it can have a different impact at different ages. This topic refers to the consequences of migration at different ages. Adaptation in the host society happens differently for children, young adults, adults of working age, or elderly migrants. This could  , relate to experiences of loneliness or social network formation, among others.

Literature listed under this topic include studies on physical and psychological well-being among elderly immigrants, immigrants in pension systems, impact of (internal) migration on left-behind parents, ageing migrants and the question of return, and the impact of migration in the childhood on youth development.

Swedish retirement migrants to Spain and migrant workers: interlinked migration chains and their consequences to work and care in Ageing Europe

Year 2013
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
In Swedish public discourse, retirees born in the 1940s are considered a growing cohort of relatively wealthy consumers, with more cosmopolitan preferences and habits, and different demands compared to previous generations. Swedish retirees are part of a growing stream of Northern Europeans who migrate to Southern Europe to retire in the sun. Exploring the relations between streams of migrants who meet in Spain, and their intermediaries, this project explores issues of mobility and the globalization of care/service, of crucial importance to welfare states and the future of work, elderly care and retirement conditions in Ageing Europe.

Ageing in transnational space. Processes of remigration between Mexico and the USA

Year 2009
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This research project addresses the decision of migrants whether to return to their country of origin or to stay in their host country upon retirement. Although our study focuses on the case of Mexican migrants in the city of Chicago, United States, the research seeks to shed light on a topic of global importance and to present a basis for comparison for similar patterns of migration in Western European countries, such as Germany. In our research we want to address the phenomenon described above by examining the case of elderly Mexican migrants in Chicago, IL. The aim of the study is twofold: First, we seek to answer the question where Mexican migrants in the USA choose to live upon retiring from working. Do they remigrate to Mexico? Do they stay in the U.S.A.? Or do they “commute” between the two countries, embodying a transnational lifestyle? Secondly, we want to explore the reasons for this choice and analyze which factors are pivotal for the settlement decision.

Mobile Ageing: Transnational Pendular Migration and Care Networks of Retirees between Turkey and Germany

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project investigates the connections between the border-crossing mobile ageing practices of retirees and their social networks in the context of care needs and services between Turkey and Germany. A growing number of elderly people from Germany – with and without prior turkish migration background – temporarily settles in tourist areas of Turkey as mobile retirement locations. Starting from the turkish coastal city of Alanya, two sub-studies will be carried out on the mobility practices and care networks of retirees from Germany both with and without prior migration backgrounds from Turkey. The project aims to understand comparatively for both groups the conditions under which border-crossing lifestyles can be maintained, to identify causes and motivations, and to understand how forms of care and support circulate in transnational networks.

Long-Run Economic Perspectives of an Ageing Society

Year 2009
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project integrates into modern dynamic macroeconomics a biologically founded process of individual ageing, i.e. ageing understood as the gradual deterioration of the functioning of body and mind. The EU member countries will be increasingly populated by older people. Our project investigates theoretically and quantitatively how ageing affects their health and productivity. Using models of endogenous economic growth we assess how the feedback effects of ageing on investment and education affect long-run economic growth, competitiveness, and welfare of the EU member countries. With multi-country models we analyze how ageing influences human capital formation and migration flows in Europe. Using models of optimal retirement decisions we investigate how ageing impacts on the contribution and employability of older workers and how this feeds back to issues of intergenerational solidarity. With models of endogenous R&D we explore how ageing interacts with technological progress and assess how ageing will affect the EU's capacity to innovate and to develop. We investigate how ageing interacts with health demand and supply and how this feeds back to the macroeconomy. We assess whether the EU's market economies and public sectors provide too much or too little health care.

Transnational Labor Markets: Migration of Workers between Austria and Germany

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The main aims of this project proposal are to assess the incidence and characteristics of old age employment. In more detail, in the first project part we use two large scale administrative panel data sets to describe (1) characteristics of the last employment spell before retirement, (2) transition patterns into retirement, retirement age and (3) employment after retirement based on the characteristics of the employees, their employment histories and employers as well as the economic environment. In addition, the correlation between the three aspects of the employment of older employees is analysed.In the next project part, determinants of old age employment are first derived theoretically and then assessed empirically. With a focus on economic decisions, again employer and employee characteristics as well as the economic environment are included in the assessment. The last project part assesses again on the basis of theoretical hypotheses and using (a third) linked employer-employee data set whether human resource management measures have an influence on the characteristics of employment at old age. Going beyond the scarce and scattered existing evidence, this project for the first time gives a complete overview over characteristics and determinants of old age employment including not only the economic considerations of individuals but also the economic rationale of their employers and the impact of the economic environment. Policy and management implications of this project are the detection of potentials for higher labour market participation of older employees and their reasons and barriers. The in-depth analysis of a broad range of human resource management measures provides additional insights into possibilities for firms to increase the employment of older employees.

Ageing Migrants' Well-being: The Structuring of Local Welfare Provisions at the Intersection of Public, Private, Third Sector and the Family

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project’s scope is to advance the state-of-the-art research in the area of ageing migrants, local welfare regimes and care provisions. The project focuses on three dimensions: 1) local welfare policies with a focus on care for ageing migrants; 2) the role of the family as an informal care provider and 3) the care by ageing migrants. The results would serve to expand the knowledge base of local welfare policies capable to contribute to the well being of ageing migrants. Lately there has been increasing awareness that some migrants are reaching the retirement age at the destination and some people choose to migrate after retirement. Like in many other European countries, in Switzerland, occurs a rapid ageing of the migrant population. From the heterogeneous group of ageing migrants, two sub-groups will be chosen – labour migrants from after WWII and the refugees – which exist in many European countries. Particular attention will be given categories at risk: separated women and the ‘older old’. To address these interdisciplinary issues, the project will employ mixed-methods, combining qualitative and quantitative methods. There will be done a quantitative analysis of the ageing migrants population in Switzerland, there will be conducted interviews with ageing migrants and with local stakeholders in the welfare provisions in three selected regions, and there will be done a policy and institutional analysis of local policies with respect to care. The project conducts several comparisons – between ageing migrant groups and between regions – in order to underline differences and similarities, and explore the causalities leading to these outcomes. The expected results would be to 1) develop conceptual framework for analysing the evolving notion of welfare by focusing on the dynamics between public, private and third sector; 2) underline the contribution of ageing migrants in society and 3) explore the limitations of the family in welfare provisions.

Social integration and boundary making in adolescence

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The idea of boundary making has moved to the centre of influential agendas in immigration research. While many studies show the location and meaning of ethnic boundaries to vary across contexts, the conditions under which actors pursue different strategies of boundary making and produce different configurations of boundaries remain largely unknown. A major reason is the lack of a contextual unit of analysis that allows one to look at a large number of comparable social fields in which processes of boundary making unfold. My project is based on the idea that studying peer dynamics across a large number of schools constitutes strategic research material for understanding boundary making. I aim to develop a theory of boundary making that explains which combinations of attributes tend to become the basis of peer group affiliation and identities depending on school context. Realising this agenda has recently become possible through advances in multilevel longitudinal social network analysis and the collection of unique panel data on complete networks of over 18,000 students in more than 900 Dutch, English, German, and Swedish classrooms in 2010 and 2011. In order to investigate how the current influx of refugees transforms the configurations of boundaries, I will strategically complement this data by conducting a new three-wave panel study in one third of the original German schools. As part of this data collection, I will conduct the first smartphone-based experience sampling study on adolescents’ everyday boundary work, which allows me to capture its everyday salience as well as the impact of public discourse and political events. Aside from breaking new ground in the interdisciplinary fields of boundaries studies, immigration research, and network science, my project will potentially have an important social impact by identifying new factors that support or hinder the social integration of minority students.

Care and Support for Elderly Migrants in Austria: Institutional Challenges and Assessment of Demand

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The percentage of people aged over 65 years and born outside Austria was 14% in 2012 and the number is growing. The aging of the migrant population is raising issues in regard of health and subsequently health care of elderly migrants as well as the demand for care services that comes along. BEMIG is aimed to improve the knowledge on the need for care and support for elderly migrants, their use of support services provided outside the family and the challenges laid down for service providers by a socioculturally diverse society. Research objectives: Based on a quantitative analysis of existing demographic data the demand for care and support for the next 5 – 10 years is estimated by taking into account temporary and permanent return and other forms of transnational conducts of life. Furthermore, expert interviews and group discussions with migrants confronted with care needs for elderly in their families will allow an assessment of existing care services and barriers to their accessibility and usage. Other research objectives are: - qualitative analysis of the relation between care by family members and their participation in education and the labour market - qualitative analysis of the entitlements of elderly migrants for care provided outside the family - assessment of recent and future role of religious and ethnical oriented providers in elderly care and support - investigations on adaptations of care providing facilities in the context of lingual, cultural and religious needs of elderly migrants. The outcome of this project shall serve as a base for target-oriented integration strategies and actions addressing elderly migrants and overall, give guidance for an integration-policy oriented development in the field of care and support for elderly people in Austria. Outcomes: - report on research outcomes - report with policy recommendations - conference

Circular migration and home care? The case of Romanian and Ukrainian home care workers in Northern Italy

Year 2011
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
In its recent documentation on migration issues, the European Commission has been promoting “circularity” as an effective and efficient way to manage labour migration from both within and outside the EU. But how does the employment of circular migrants exactly work and what are its implications for Europe's societal challenges such as ageing and immigration? To answer to these questions, the present study focuses on Eastern European circular migrants and the elderly care sector. In particular, it draws attention to Romanian and Ukrainian care workers within the two Italian provinces of Verona and Reggio Emilia with the aim to assess the actual convenience of “circularity” for the overall improvement of home care provision. On this ground, it pursues three interrelated research objectives: 1) the impact of “circularity” on the employment relationship between care workers and their employers; 2) the way circular migration affects the organisation of home care from the welfare state’s point of view; and finally 3) the conditions which allow “circularity” to take place in an efficient and profitable way. These issues are investigated in a comparative and diachronic way, looking at the differences between Ukrainian and Romanian migratory patterns during the period of 2006-2011. A further layer of comparison is added by the differences between Verona and Reggio Emilia, two towns with relevant dissimilarities concerning political traditions and public administrations. Finally, this project contributes to the scholarly debate on gender, care and migration by introducing “care units” (i.e. the ensemble of subjects involved in the provision of care to an individual care receiver) as an innovative object of analysis. In order to assess the impact of “circularity” on these “care units”, a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods is foreseen for extended fieldwork in the two Italian provinces.
