Older Persons' Self-Advocacy Handbook on human rights

Our new online 'Older Persons' Self-Advocacy Handbook' aims to support the involvement of older persons in all processes that affect their human rights. This publication describes concrete ways on how older people can refer to human rights to influence government policies and measures, so as to be empowered, as self-advocates and through their representative organisations, to voice their concerns and expectations and drive positive change in their everyday lives.

This handbook, which can also be used by different stakeholders, promotes a human-rights based approach in ageing policy at all levels.
