AGAC Issue Focus is a biannual periodical that aims to address ageing and human rights issues in a timely fashion. The publication introduces relevant ASEM partner policies and responses to a wider audience in order to promote information sharing and awareness-raising, and ultimately enhance ASEM partner cooperation.
The AGAC Issue Focus Team prepared this Spring and Summer edition of Issue Focus: Older Persons and the Right to Adequate Housing. Valuable insight and input were provided by the contributors to this issue – Bev James MNZM at Public Policy & Research; Laura Mills at Amnesty International; Rochelle S. Agualin at the Coalition of Services for the Elderly; and Sojung Park at Washington University in St. Louis, Byeongju Ryu at Boston College, Sehyun Baek at Washington University in St. Louis, and Ahra Ko at Yonsei University.
We hope that this edition will inspire advocates for the human rights of older persons around the world and contribute to improving their quality of life, particularly in relation to the repeatedly violated right to adequate housing.
