Agency is specifically activated and can be traced either through the careful planning and preparation which often underpins migration decisions, or through a focus on ruptures in the life course (Hörschelmann 2011). For many, working abroad while ageing can be precisely the result of one or several ruptures—in work or love life, for instance. However, the notion of ‘rupture’ also involves the important notion of continuities and ‘personal becomings’ in a way that combines new beginnings with past connections, but that maps out a lifestyle which is very different from what it was like before moving.

2000). But the inexorable demographic trend of ageing in Europe also produces other movements of ageing migrants, driven this time by inequality and relative poverty. In the Latvian case, the key migration drivers are low, or zero, incomes for older women, difficulty of being considered for any kind of paid work, and minimal pensions and social protection, especially in the wake of the post-2008 crisis. Knowing this, we argue that, in addition to gender, which is now fairly well established as a key axis of theorisation in the study of migration, researchers should incorporate age and ageing into migration theory— starting with the push-pull model, one of the earliest, and simplest, ‘explanations’ for why migration takes place.
