Abstract

Analysing the relationships and support among generations and understanding which factors favour or hinder them, is fundamental in order to conceive more age-friendly societies. The paper aims at discussing issues related to social networks among older adults, intergenerational exchanges and support, based on a secondary analysis of research results obtained from SHARE survey data and on data from the Italian survey Non mi ritiro. The focus is on social network structures among older adults and on their functional dimensions and on reciprocal exchanges among generations. We pay attention to both the methodological and theoretical frameworks of the selected analysis. Some final comments review those factors that facilitate or hinder intergenerational support at both the micro level of individuals and the macro level of social contexts in which they live.
