Rural communities are ageing as a result of a complex interaction of demographic and socio-economic processes across Europe and beyond. This is a spatially uneven process. The consequences of rural demographic ageing are many and with implications for individuals, households, and communities. In this Working Group (WG) we hope to assemble a series of papers to continue the critical exploration and interest scholars and practitioners have in rural demographic ageing in all its diversity, with a more specific focus on how it is both experienced and responded to. The WG in particular invites papers (full papers, first draft) for a special issue on rural ageing across places and spaces in AGER Journal of depopulation and rural development studies. Those wanting to submit a paper for the special issue, please notify the conveners of the WG upon abstract submission. Other papers (not opting for the AGER special issue) are also warmly welcome.
Traditional paper presentations & two workshops to develop a forthcoming anthology as well as a journal special issue publication
