Ageing Portugal: Longevity challenges

27.01.2021

Today, one of the biggest signs of prosperity is the increase of average life expectancy. However, the perspectives on aging are not the best: elderly people, even if active, are globally seen as fragile, sick and dependent people, which promotes cases of disrespect of their rights, exclusion, marginalization and, often, situations of crime and violence. Recognizing this reality, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Portuguese Victim Support Association (APAV) developed, between January 2019 and June 2020, a project that resulted in the ‘Older Portugal Report’, which identifies some of the gaps in public policies and legislation in relation to violence against elderly people and proposes recommendations to address them.

The second Session of the ‘InterActions Symposium’ presents this Report, challenging organizations to develop actions for its dissemination and training of their agents in order to prevent and uncover this social scourge.
