About This Book

We all know that today's demographic trends will inevitably mean that the proportion of elderly in Asia's ever-growing population will continue to increase. In these 15 papers 26 specialists address many aspects of implications of this not-necessarily-negative fact. After introductory overviews in Part 1, Part 2 looks at aspects of income security with reference to approaches in Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Part 3 considers employment and other sources of financial and social support. Part 4 examines ageing, migration, and development issues with reference to experiences in Singapore, the Philippines and Sarawak. The final two papers discuss interactive issues of government, civil society and policy implementation. With index and separate bibliographies.
