dc.description.abstractThe term “human rights convention for older persons” refers to a legal instrument that purports to guarantee that older persons enjoy the full spectrum of their human rights on the basis of human dignity, equality, and nondiscrimination. This means that aging is reassessed through a human rights perspective according to which older persons can enjoy the full set of economic, social, cultural, civil, and political rights. As of 2019, no such legal instrument has been drafted at the United Nations (UN) level. Up to this day, this is a human rights process where various actors, including UN organs, and other stakeholders are engaged in a quest for articulating wider protection of rights and entitlements of the marginalized (and often invisible) older populationen_US
