The general aim of the project was to enhance understanding of globalisation and its effect on the structure of societies. In particular, the impact that mobilisation of labour forces has had on the age structure of rural areas in developing countries. It was intended to examine the effect that immigration has had on the availability of support for older people. The findings are to be disseminated to international, national and local NGOs, national and state governments, health care professionals and other service-provider government departments and agencies.
