Abstract: This chapter reviews recent research on migration and workforce aging, and examines the relationship between policy and practice in this contested area. At present, most attention has focused on the extent to which migrant labour can replenish labour stocks in aging societies, and to a lesser extent on the impact of emigration on the countries that export significant proportions of their population. There has until recently been much less focus on the experiences of older migrants, though this now appears to be changing.
