Older men and women have the same rights as everyone else: we are all born equal and this does not change as we grow older. Even so, older people’s rights are mostly invisible under international law.
A convention is an important way of protecting older people’s rights. To achieve a convention, debate and action have to take place at national and international levels.
“Strengthening Older People’s Rights: Towards a UN Convention” is a resource for promoting dialogue about a convention.
The Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People wants to encourage the widest possible debate and engagement with national leaders about older people’s rights. We would be delighted to learn how this publication is being used to achieve this in your country.
