"The Rights of Older Persons: A Collection of International Documents," is a new book edited by Prof. Israel Doron (Haifa University) and Prof. Kate Mewhinney (Wake Forest University). Kate is the former chair of the Association of American Law Schools Section on Disability Law; she chaired that section during the year that I was chair of the AALS Section on International Human Rights Law. We cosponsored a panel with that section during the last AALS meeting in New York.
Her book holds a unique collection of all the main international documents relating to the rights of older persons. The book provides a broad and comprehensive picture of the worldwide activities in the field of international law and ageing. Click here for details,
