Kinship and Ageing

This seminar was organized under the auspices of EAPS by the Committee on Family Research of the International Sociological Association (ISA), the Institute of Sociology of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Hungarian Scientific Society of Family and Women Welfare. The seminar gave an opportunity to scholars engaged in kinship research to present their ideas and research findings to an interdisciplinary expert audience and to get acquainted with each others' results. The papers concentrated on the role of kinship in the 'third age', i.e. on the kinship interactions of the aged.
