Generational Change and new policy challenges

Australia and South Korea

Edited by Ruth Phillips

ISBN: 9781920898649

DOI: 10.30722/sup.9781920898649

Publication date: 01 October 2007

What is the ‘sandwich generation’ and why is ‘care’ its key defining characteristic?
What are the different effects and responses to the digital generation in Australia and Korea? How are Australia and Korea addressing the needs arising from the pressing social issue of our time, the ageing of our populations?

How might scholars, practitioners and students approach these diverse generational issues in a comparative context? You will find insightful responses to these and other questions in this book. Leading researchers in their fields such as national demography expert, Professor Peter McDonald, leading gerontology researcher, Professor Hal Kendig, childcare policy expert, Associate Professor Deborah Brennan and a number of Korean counterparts provide strong analytical discussions on key issues for the future of the two countries.

Arising from a conference held in late 2005 that brought together key researchers across a number of disciplines, this edited collection draws together critical concerns of two countries that are experiencing extraordinary generational change. With support from the Australia Korea Foundation, this book has been produced as an important resource for anyone interested in how Australia's responses to generational change compare to Korea's engagement with very similar problems. It highlights similarities and diversities in experiences and responses within Australia and Korea and analyses the major social policy challenges in the present and for the future.
