The International Institute of Migration and Development, in collaboration with the Department of Social Sciences, VIT, Vellore, invites researchers, policymakers, and practitioners from diverse fields such as demography, economics, medicine, public health, sociology, and social work to submit papers for the “Third Annual International Conference on Ageing and Labour.”


India is undergoing through a rapid demographic transition. This transition as like in many developing countries has implications for ageing, demographic dividend, migration, skills, urbanisation and female participation in the labour force. In line with global ageing experience of many regions, the evidence of subnational level of ageing is clearly visible in the Indian context with diverse ageing transition experience in different states/regions therefore lessons from them are to be shared and discussed for a better policy and practice. The International Institute of Migration and Developmentā€™s (IIMAD) third annual conference on population ageing will provide a platform to explore the potential for a transdisciplinary approach to ageing and labour with an opportunity to exchange knowledge, collaborate and communicate policy solutions. The conference is open to researchers, policy makers and practitioners cutting across diverse backgrounds including demography, economics, medicine and nursing, public health, sociology and social work to communicate their findings and thoughts. Specifically, the conference will collate knowledge exchange from a variety of disciplines that primarily addresses the concern of all labour aspects of ageing including work, organization of work, work environment and security, retirement, economic security etc.
