Vortrag in Englisch mit deutscher Übersetzungshilfe: “Discrimination of older people and their rights”
Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Heidrun Mollenkopf, vice-president of the AGE-Platform Europe and board member of BAGSO, Germany
Discrimination on grounds of age is among the most frequent reasons for complaints – mostly in the field of work. But Discrimination or – in other words – ageism is occurring in many more everyday situations. During the last weeks older persons felt quite often discriminated: they were regarded as “risk group”, they had to stay at home, residents of care homes were not allowed to see their relatives and friends – all limitations to their rights of autonomy, social relationships and dignity. Which limitations to older persons’ rights can we accept – and how can we counteract such discriminatory attitudes? This presentation will reflect on such questions.
Language: English, translation help will be given in Bulgarian, Romanian and German.
