Strengthening Older People's Rights

towards a United Nations Convention on the Rights of Older people


Toward a UN Convention

This report is a resource for promoting dialogue on creating a new UN Convention on the Rights of Older Persons.

With a new UN convention, and the assistance of a Special Rapporteur, governments can have an explicit legal framework, guidance and support that would enable them to ensure that older people’s rights are realised in our increasingly ageing societies.
