The Eighth Annual Session of the UN’s Open Ended Working Group on Ageing will take place in New York from 5-7 July.

This is an important meeting for NHRIs, as A-status institutions have now been granted speaking rights at the OEWG. To this end, participation from our members at the meeting is strongly encouraged. H.E. Martín García Moritán, Chair designate of the OEWG-A has also issued a call for submissions on the two focus issues to be discussed at the July meeting (Equality and Non-discrimination and Neglect, Violence and Abuse), with a 5th May deadline.
