Responding to the challenge of ageing?

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    The aim of the research is to discover the state of art in sociological research of ageing issues in Latvia and Lithuania, involving the following tasks: a) to disclose the socio-demographic and political context of ageing research in both countries; b) to evaluate the institutionalization level of sociological research in ageing (in terms of presence of professional publications, education of specialists, and self-instructive community). Methods and data: bibliographic research using keywords (resources of national libraries in Latvia and Lithuania), secondary analysis of data (reports, publications). Limitations of research: the analysis of situation is limited to the historical period of 1993-2010, which almost coincide with the first two decades of the regained independency of Latvia and Lithuania. Data was collected in spring-summer 2010. Bibliographic research do include only scientific literature on ageing issues. The research results show that the sociological research on ageing in both countries despite of a challenging context, is not an explicit subdiscipline of sociology or social gerontology, namely, the institutionalization level of sociology of ageing could be described as being still in an early stage.
