In the light of contemporary ageing societies, intergenerational solidarity is becoming more crucial for welfare states. Intergenerational solidarity is a multi-dimensional and multidirectional concept affected by various micro and macro level factors. Education is one of the micro level factors that affect intergenerational normative solidarity and this qualitative study seeks to understand in what ways attitudes differ among different education levels. In this study, 17 pairs of older mothers/mother in-laws and their adult daughters/daughters in law from different educational backgrounds are recruited for semi-structured interviews. Consequently, 5 themes have emerged for adult women: “life aspirations", "attitudes towards care work", "attitudes towards domestic labour", "pull factors" and "push factors". For older women, 3 themes have emerged: “gender of children”, “value of children” and “views on care homes”.
