East Asian societies are changing fast and one of the most important aspects of societal change is the aging of society. '¬SActive ageing'¬ is one of the few concepts available today to effectively address the problems arising from a highly-aged and, particularly in East Asia, fast-aging society, offering a new social policy paradigm to redirect and innovate new social policies, particularly social services, social transfers, social regulations and laws, towards more investment in and support of the fast rising number of elderly citizens. This book focuses on the experiences of East Asian societies where active aging has been implemented and as such will appeal to students and scholars of social and public policy, social work, gerontology and health and social administration.
