Webinar – Realising Economic and Social Rights in Europe: Tips and tricks for NHRIs focusing on older persons’ rights


On the eve of the EU Day of Solidarity Between Generations on 29 April, ENNHRI held a webinar exploring NHRIs’ work on the rights of older persons. The webinar, led by Sanna Ahola from the Finnish Human Rights Centre, explored how can NHRIs better understand challenges and human rights violations that older persons face and how they can better support them.
