International Experts Meet at the ICSG

Apr 2012

As a part of the activities of the international working group on operationalising age-related social exclusion, funded by the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences, a team of international experts met at the ICSG to discuss issues around conceptualisation and measurement of excluded older people. Working group members include colleagues from such countries as Canada, North America, Australia, the UK, the Netherlands and Finland and are drawn from the disciplines of social gerontology, rural ageing and rural development. As a part of this meeting, a half-day public workshop was also held with invited guests to advance a national discourse on social exclusion, ageing and place.
