Media reviews
This landmark report argues convincingly that older people are a resource for all our futures, whose rights must be respected and whose contributions acknowledged in all that we do. With great clarity, its authors describe the realities of older people's lives and the many options facing research, policy and practice. It deserves to be widely-read and heeded. -- Michael Edwards, Senior Civil Society Specialist, The World Bank, and Director-Designate, Governance and Civil Society, The Ford Foundation
