Comment la migration affecte-t-elle la vulnérabilité des personnes âgées ? Quelles sont des différences et similarités entre les personnes âgées avec et sans une expérience de migration ? Cette conférence, donnée en anglais, réunit des chercheur·e·s discutant de plusieurs thématiques et s’intéressant aux personnes âgées qui vieillissent dans un contexte migratoire ou non en Suisse et à l'étranger.

Older persons are portrayed as a homogeneous population, and policy and even research acknowledge very little the variability within this group. Yet, there are older persons with an experience of migration, others who have migrated internally within a country, as well as persons who have never moved. There are varied life courses leading to distinct situations in old age. Furthermore, there is a constant increase in the population of older migrants. Older migrants are rather marginal in research both in the fields of gerontology and migration. This conference brings together researchers discussing several topics and populations of older persons with and without a migration background in Switzerland and abroad.

Thématiques

  • Migrations, citoyenneté, interculturalité
