This chapter examines the vital development, associated with globalisation, of transnational families. It argues that the phenomenon of globalisation raises important new issues for understanding family life in old age. Generally, the focus on globalisation confirms the importance of positioning individuals within the orbit of social and economic structures that are increasingly subject to forces lying beyond the boundaries of the nation state.

Keywords:   globalisation, transnational communities, family life, old age, economic structures, social structures, nation state
