Access to Justice in Older Age
Access to Justice is one of the new areas of older people’s human rights that will be discussed at the 11th session of the Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing in New York from 6-9th April 2020. The UN will soon call for written submissions on this topic, which will play an important role in shaping the debates that will happen at the 11th session. Strong civil society response to this consultation is vital.
This webinar explored some of the key issues and barriers around access to justice in older age. It also offered some tips and support on how you can prepare high-quality substantive inputs to the upcoming UN consultation.
