Immigration in an Aging Society

Immigration in an Aging Society

Independent Consultant Barry Mirkin reviews Immigration in an Aging Society. This issue of the journal Generations addresses the fact that contemporary research on immigration generally focuses on the working-age population and their children, ignoring older populations. Some topics discussed include aging societies’ dependence on migrants and the ironic correlation between societies dependent on immigration and hostility towards migrants, among other topics. This series of essays initiates this little-discussed issue of immigration and aging.
