International Spotlight

Each International Spotlight will feature a different country. Invited authors will be asked to describe the demographics of aging in their country, identify the main areas of research and key researchers, discuss secondary data sets that are available to researchers, pinpoint key public policy issues, and highlight emerging issues likely to influence the aging experience in their country. We hope that these articles will not only enhance our understanding about global aging but also spark international collaborations that ultimately will lead to more sophisticated research and better public policies and practices supporting older people.
