LOGO AMASESocial exclusion in old age remains a significant health and social problem in Europe. Rising longevity, demographic ageing, accelerated digitalization processes, and active ageing policies are continuously shaping the dynamics of old age social exclusion. New intersectional inequalities emerge as the existing micro-, meso- and macro-social realities come into play. Research into the issue grew significantly over the past years, contributing to a better understanding of old age exclusion through data gathering, novel theoretical approaches, and combining support from various disciplines. Moreover, diminishing social exclusion remains a chief concern of policy, while incorporating ageing issues across policy making from the local to the European level is increasingly promoted.
