Background:

In the 9th OEWG session from 23rd – 26th July 2018, UN Member States will engage in a substantive debate about two specific areas of human rights where the protection of older people’s rights requires greater attention: ‘Independence and Autonomy’ and ‘Long Term and Palliative Care’. Member States will also have further discussions around how the two focus areas discussed in the 8th OEWG session should be articulated in a new convention: ‘Equality and non-discrimination’ and ‘Neglect, violence and abuse’.

It is vital that NGOs are ready to participate actively in these discussions and put forward concrete recommendations to build a stronger understanding about these specific areas and how they might be addressed in a convention. This workshop complements other events and support that GAROP has been providing to its members and NGOs throughout the year, including our webinar series and other advocacy tools.

Aims of this Workshop:

- To enhance coordination among NGOs participating in this process and OEWG9

- To support NGO engagement in the OEWG process and OEWG9

- To strengthen connections among NGOs and other key stakeholders in the OEWG process
