Social policymakers need a balanced, thoughtful, and analytical resource to meet the challenge of global "graying" at a rate that's historically unprecedented. The Journal of Aging & Social Policy examines the important policy issues that affect the elderly in societies throughout the world.
The Journal of Aging & Social Policy presents insightful contributions from an international and interdisciplinary panel of policy analysts, researchers, and scholars. The journal examines and analyzes policymaking and the political processes that affect the development and implementation of programs for the elderly from a global perspective, highlighting not only the United States but also Europe, the Middle East, Australia, Latin America, Asia, and the Asia-Pacific rim. Issues regularly addressed in the journal include: long-term care, home and community-based care, nursing home care, assisted living; long-term care financing, financial security, employment and training, public and private pension coverage; housing; transportation; health care access and financing; retirement. In addition to the major issues of growing old in a youth-oriented society, the Journal of Aging & Social Policy also reviews the processes for adopting policies at the state and federal levels, examining the interplay of political and economic forces, legal and regulatory constraints, the pressure of special interests, and the influence of constituencies.
The Journal of Aging & Social Policy is an essential source for critical and historical analysis, and cutting-edge thought and discussion on age-based policy, and a must for educators, practitioners, researchers, and administrators who work with the elderly.
