Ageing Abroad. The Case of Swiss Nationals in Morocco and Spain

Publié en ligne: 16 Jul 2020
Pages: 199 - 217

Résumé

Abstract

Cultural, social, and economic factors have led to an increase in late-life migration of citizens from richer countries to poorer ones. Although research interest in this phenomenon has risen as well, the case of people leaving Switzerland remains little studied. Yet, in 2017, 11 % of Swiss men and women aged 65 and over lived abroad. Drawing on two case studies of older Swiss migrants to Spain and Morocco, this article contributes to a better understanding of this phenomenon.

Older Refugees: Strategies in Dealing With Denied Recognition

Publié en ligne: 16 Jul 2020
Pages: 219 - 238

Résumé

Abstract

Until now the topic linking age and the moment of fleeing one’s country of origin have been of scientific interest only rarely. Older refugees have hardly attracted scientific attention. Qualitative interviews with older refugees show that Swiss integration policy is barely tailored to the needs and expectations of these persons and that they are affected by social exclusion. Therefore, older refugees have to develop their own strategies in order to participate in society and gain recognition.

Mots clés

  • Older refugees

Transnational Grandparenting at the Test of Migration Policy: The Case of European and Non-European Grandparents Who Come to Switzerland to Care for Their Grandchildren

Publié en ligne: 16 Jul 2020
Pages: 239 - 258

Résumé

Abstract

This article is based on a qualitative and comparative study of childcare arrangements that European and non-European grandparents engage in in Switzerland. It shows that the Swiss migration regime significantly shapes these arrangements, as a result of free circulation versus visa constraints that discriminate EU and non-EU nationals. It also points to other structuring factors, such as the Swiss care and gender regimes or the quality of intergenerational relations.

Autonomous Elderly People, Nursing Cases and Self-Employed Workers in Need of Supervision: Subject Constructions in the Context of 24-Hour Care in Austria

Publié en ligne: 16 Jul 2020
Pages: 259 - 280

Résumé

Abstract

The article examines the dispositif of 24-hour care in the context of socio-political activation. Based on a discourse analysis of websites of Austrian placement agencies, I show how care receivers and care workers are constructed as autonomous clients, passive nursing cases and self-employed workers in need of supervision and support. I demonstrate how the ambivalent subject constructions are related to competing dispositifs and how this reproduces social power relations.

«Good Pay for Good Work»? Legitimation and Criticism in the Regulation Process of Round-the-Clock Elderly Care in Swiss Private Households

Publié en ligne: 16 Jul 2020
Pages: 281 - 303

Résumé

Abstract

This article focuses on efforts to regulate live-in care in Swiss households. Based on a sociology of legitimation, the model is conceptualised as a fragile order with a need for legitimation, and expectations towards its regulation are examined. While claims to justice serve as principles of criticism, austerity-based claims legitimise the arrangement. The need for adjustment is dealt with in a way that the model remains possible. Regulation remains fragmented and the debate about costs overshadows the question of how to (re-)organise long-term care.

The Ageing Multicultural Society. Studies of Intersectional Practices in Culturally Sensitive Care

Publié en ligne: 16 Jul 2020
Pages: 305 - 329

Résumé

Abstract

This article investigates intersectional practices of culturally sensitive care by correlating discourse and practice. Methodologically, this article follows actors observed in retirement homes who translate discursive fragments of care into situated practices of care. In detailed analyses of practical coordination of action between caregivers and migrants suffering from dementia it will be shown that practices of intersubjectivity in culturally sensitive care are implicit, bodily performative, context sensitive, and in part culturally indifferent.

Racialization Without Racism in Scholarship on Old Age

Publié en ligne: 16 Jul 2020
Pages: 331 - 349

Résumé

Abstract

Population aging and international migration have propelled the aging of ethno-cultural minorities to the forefront of social scientific inquiries. Examining how scholarship on old age makes sense of ethnicity and race has become relevant. Based on a scoping review of peer-reviewed articles published between 1998 and 2017 (n = 336), the present article asks whether the notions of racialization and racism inform this scholarship and argues that a racism-sensitive research agenda is needed.
