This chapter aims to highlight the development of the conceptual and theoretical bases on which the intergenerational solidarity-conflict and ambivalence paradigms were shaped. It notes that further analysis of the two paradigms can provide insight for understanding the complex social phenomenon of intergenerational family relations in later life. It addresses and analyse the two models and discusses empirical evidence regarding their impact on quality of life, based on OASIS (Old Age and Anatomy: The Role of Service Systems and Intergenerational Family Solidarity).

Keywords:   intergenerational solidarity-conflict, ambivalence paradigm, intergenerational family relations, OASIS
