Abstract: Report to the UK Government’s Foresight Future of an Ageing Population: Evidence Review for the Foresight programme, Government Office for Science Changes in societal and family generations are potential drivers of societal change. Evidence presented in this review explores the current experiences and attitudes towards societal generational relationships, current family experiences, obligations and behaviour towards older family generations, and these vary within and between generations. The concept of generation is central to this Evidence Review. Evidence about societal level of intergenerational relationships, is attributable to life course stage and differences in cohort experiences including within-cohort inequalities. The rhetoric around the existence of intergenerational conflict remains largely unsupported. Family generational research shows mixed findings on whether families continue to be the safe haven in which resources are exchanged and members supported.
