Journal article: Life course pathways into intergenerational caregiving



Ricardo Rodrigues and Selma Kadi have published an article titled "life course pathways into intergenerational caregiving" in The Journals of Gerontology - Series B. Based on qualitative interviews of a sample of dyads in Austria and Slovenia, the article provides a typology of pathways into informal caregiving built around key life transitions (e.g. divorces), cumulative processes (e.g. reciprocal exchanges, but also cumulative (dis)advantages) and linked lives of social convoys. The article is co-authored with colleagues from the University of Ljubljana and is part of the DET_CAREMIX project. The abstract and article (open access) can be found here.
