Sustainable Care Co-Investigator, Professor Louise Ryan, and our Partners at the Centre of Migration Research at the University of Warsaw have been successfully funded for a study which focuses on Polish grandparents’ transnational care relationships.
The study, ‘Grandparenting at a distance’, will be led by Dr Weronika Kloc-Nowak and aims to
investigate the relations between contemporary Polish grandmothers, grandfathers and grandchildren,
the ways in which these relations are maintained and the value they have for grandparents. Professor Louise Ryan takes the role of International Expert Advisor on the project.
Professor Louise Ryan is a Co-Investigator in the Sustainable Care programme. Her work package (Co-led with Dr Majella Kilkey) is examining migrants’ experiences of care in and out of place, focusing on three groups: ageing migrants in the UK; British retirement migrants in Spain; and migrant care workers in the UK.
