This special section builds on previous scholarship on geographies of ageing, and
on relational and transnational approaches to age and migration, to assert the sig-
nificance of the ageing–migration nexus in human geography. Our primary goal
is to examine the intricate relat ionships between ageing, migration, space and
place. By bringing empi rical research on ageing and migration into dialogue with
existing conceptual work within Geography, we also aim to critically contr ibute
to current debates in both areas. The contributors explore a wide range of migra-
tion processes and experiences through an intersectional lens, and demon strate the
importance of a diverse set of epistemological and methodological approaches to
explore the spatialities of the ageing–migration nexus. Key dimensions examined
include, but are not limited to, the spaces and places of ageing and migration, the
multi-scalar nature of the geographies of the ageing–migration nexus, their (im)-
mobilities, fluid boundaries, and emotional geographies
