Division Ageing and Social Change (ASC)

Network Partner

Division Ageing and Social Change (ASC, Linköping University, Sweden) is a Swedish research institution in the field of ageing and later life. It conducts leading-edge research on key social, political and cultural issues of ageing. While providing basic and advanced academic training within these fields, ASC also contributes to the proliferation of knowledge about ageing within society. ASC seeks to generate and improve knowledge about ageing as both a social and individual process within the context of a dynamic world, where demographic shifts are a crucial part of social change in contemporary and future societies. The main focus of ASC’s research on ageing is on the relationship between the life-course and social change. Their complex relationship is analyzed from a multi-level perspective, from society as a whole to the individual, and the interaction between them over time. From these ambitious perspectives, ASC’s research topics include social inequality and inclusion/exclusion, ageing with health and disability, as well as ageing in social and physical contexts.
