By Ralph Ruebner, Editor and Teresa Do, and Amy Taylor, Co-Editors

This book addresses the rights of older persons from an international law and comparative law perspective. These chapters reflect the scholarly presentations which were presented at The 21st Annual Belle R. and Joseph H. Braun Memorial Symposium: 2014 International Elder Law & Policy Conference. The conference was held at The John Marshall Law School, Chicago, Illinois, on July 10-11, 2014, and was co-sponsored by The John Marshall Law School, Roosevelt University of Chicago, and The East China University of Political Science and Law of Shanghai, China. The conference provided a forum for international scholars, human rights advocates, and policymakers to participate in an academic setting to discuss the current law and policies that affect the rights of older persons and to explore means to advance rights of and legal protections for older persons. The theme of the conference was intended to complement and support the ongoing discussions at the United Nations Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing, through a series of presentations, panel discussions, and the drafting of the Chicago Declaration on the Rights of Older Persons.
