Programme Launch: Marginalised Ageing and Inclusive Systems

The CESRD is delighted to be partnering with the Irish Gerontological Society and the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology to run a Symposium Series on Marginalised Ageing and Inclusive Systems. This series is part of the IGS scientific programme for 2020/2021. The series will run from December 2020 to April 2021. It will examine the experiences of different groups of older people including older workers, family carers, people living with dementia, older members of the Traveller and homeless communities and older adults who have experienced age discrimination and isolation.

The series will be launched on the 7th December 2020, 15:00-16:30 with a keynote address from Prof Liat Ayalon. Prof Ayalon will talk about Ageism, Language and Policy. The talk will be moderated by Prof Kieran Walsh and Prof Rose Anne Kenny, with a panel consisting of Valerie Cox, Prof Eamon O’Shea, Prof Amanda Phelan and Dr Diarmuid O’Shea.
