Human Rights of Older Persons in Long-Term Care

Our project on the Human Rights of Older Persons in Long-Term Care commenced in January 2015. This EU-funded project will run until the end of 2017 and aims to improve the human rights protection of older persons in long-term care, with particular emphasis on residential care.

This project comes at a critical time, considering Europe’s changing demography and the ongoing developments in the international human rights framework. Indeed, the project is an innovative example of bringing European NHRIs together to address the life experiences of a large section of our society that is so often hidden from view.
