Rights and meanings in later life
As Australia's population ages, there is a need to broaden our understanding of the rights and contributions of older adults, in order to develop relevant policies and services.
Our first paper addressed the rights of older persons under current human rights law. The second examined the diversity of roles that have been open to older adults throughout history, belief systems and cultures. The third explored the personal stories of older Australians.
