Chapter 6: Intergenerational aspects of elder law: conflict, solidarity – or ambivalence

Jenny Julén Votinius and Mia Rönnmar


In the analysis of how intergenerational relations play out and are met in elder law, this chapter suggests the introduction of intergenerational ambivalence into the established binary solidarity–conflict approach. The first part of the chapter lays out and situates the discourse on intergenerational relations in a wider conceptual, demographic and political context. In the second part, different manifestations of intergenerational ambivalence in elder law are discussed with examples from the area of labour law and industrial relations, against the background of the legal and policy framework in the area of intergenerational relations. Intergenerational relations, intergenerational ambivalence, elder law, labour law, industrial relations, age discrimination
