Age as an Equality Issue

Legal and Policy Perspectives

Edited by: Sandra Fredman, Sarah Spencer

To what extent is age inevitably linked with declining capacity? What are the goals of a policy on age equality, and how can these be realized in law? How should law and policy address age discrimination in health, education and employment? Should young people be dealt with in the same way as older people? This book answers these questions in a series of chapters by experts from a wide range of disciplines. It examines the nature of the aging process and provides a detailed analysis of the concept of age equality.
