UN Human Rights Council side-event: ‘Social Exclusion of Older Persons: impact & solutions’

2018-09-11 12:30 - 13:30

The event will take place on Tuesday, 11 September 2018 – 12h30-13h30 – Geneva, Palais des Nations, Conference Room XXV.

This side event will discuss the impact of social exclusion of older persons – a key issue in addressing existing protection gaps, thereby focusing on concrete rights-based solutions. Based on the Independent Expert’s report (A/HRC/39/50) that provides an overview of the global policy framework and analyses social exclusion concepts and various forms of appearances, gaps and good practices will be discussed – in an informal interactive way with a wide variety of discussants from the civil society, international organizations, state representatives and other stakeholders – in light of the need for a consistent application of a human rights-based lens to ageing as well as solutions such as the formulation of global minimum standards.
