Ageing Portugal: Challenges of Longevity

27.01.2021

Today, one of the greatest signs of prosperity is the increase in average life expectancy. However, the prospects of ageing are not the best: older people, even when active, are seen worldwide as fragile, sick and dependent, fostering cases of disregard for their rights, exclusion, marginalization and often situations of crime and violence. Against the backdrop of this reality, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Portuguese Victim Support Association (APAV) have developed a project from January 2019 to June 2020, which was published as a Report: “Portugal an older country”, highlighting some of the gaps in public policies and legislation regarding violence against older people and proposing some recommendations to tackle them.

The second session of the InterActions Symposium presents this report and invites organizations to promote its dissemination and qualify their representatives to prevent and expose this social suffering.
