Ageing Abroad

Cultural, social, and economic factors have led to an increase in late-life migration of citizens from richer countries to poorer ones. Although research interest in this phenomenon has risen as well, the case of people leaving Switzerland remains little studied. Yet, in 2017, 11 % of Swiss men and women aged 65 and over lived abroad. Drawing on two case studies of older Swiss migrants to Spain and Morocco, this article contributes to a better understanding of this phenomenon.
