Exploring normative elements to advance the human rights of older person (OEWG on Ageing Side Event)
26 Jul 2018 -  This workshop shared draft ideas for normative elements of the rights to equality and non-discrimination and freedom from violence, abuse and neglect utilising the inputs gathered in a seminar organised by the United Nations Human Rights Regional Office for Europe (OHCHR ROE) and AGE Platform Europe and the insights of an informal group of human rights experts that prepared a joint submission for the 9th session of the OEWG. Based on these initial suggestions we will seek to gather feedback from the audience in order to refine conceptions of these rights and the obligations they involve for states and other actors.

Event organised by AGE Platform Europe and HelpAge International and supported by the UN Office of the High Commissioner (OHCHR).
