Families caring across borders: migration, ageing, and transnational caregiving

Loretta Virginia Baldassar, Cora Baldock, Raelene Wilding

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review


A moving ethnographic account of the transnational caregiving experiences and practices of migrants and refugees who live in Australia, with their parents in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and New Zealand. This timely work contributes rich detailed knowledge of how people respond to a world characterised by unprecedented mobility (both voluntary and forced), globalised job markets and an ageing population, as increasing numbers of families find themselves spread across the globe and caring for their elderly parents from a distance.
