AnnotationResidential proximity, intergenerational relations and the support of the elderly (RPIRSE) is a project supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Social interaction is one of the major conceptual issues to be investigated during this research, and is an area of study at the heart of sociology and other allied social sciences. This working paper considers selected examples from the literature. The state of research indicates that discussion regarding the precise effect of `space' on people's interactive behaviour is far from clear, and continues to be a matter of contention. (RH).
