In a concluding chapter, Norah Keating and Thomas Scharf synthesise the key arguments raised by contributing authors to the book. They also identify a number of cross-cutting issues that merit closer reflection by researchers. In a forward-looking piece, the authors highlight a number of challenges that lie ahead in relation to the risks of exclusion faced by ageing adults around the world. Responding to such challenges, with the goal of promoting greater inclusion in later life, should represent a goal for policy makers, practitioners and the research community.
