This volume provides evidence from many of Australia’s leading scholars from a range of social science disciplines to support policies that address challenges presented by Australia’s ageing population. It builds on presentations made to the 2014 Symposium of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia.
The material is in four parts:
- Perspectives on Ageing
- Population Ageing: Global, regional and Australian perspectives
- Improving Health and Wellbeing
- Responses by Government and Families/Individuals
