How does aging intersect with migration in lived experiences of displacement?

Tracing the lived experiences of childhood, youth, adulthood, and old age in forced migration contexts, Aging In and Out of Place explores how social age as an identity marker changes over time, space and place.

By centring stories of displacement in Canada, the US, the UK and Australia, Christina Clark-Kazak offers analysis on the impact of national and international policies and their engagement with individual and collective identity markers, including age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, and religion.

Providing innovative insights into the underexplored area of social age in forced migration research, policy and practice, this book is ideal reading for students of interdisciplinary courses including Forced Migration and Refugee Studies, Childhood Studies, Development Studies, and Gerontology; as well as policy makers.

Christina Clark-Kazak PhD is Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at University of Ottawa.
