Wake Forest Elder Law Clinic Resources on International and Foreign Law Issues

The Wake Forest University School of Law's Elder Law Clinic website provides an excellent listing of articles on international elder law issues as well as a useful collection of international elder law resources. 

The Wake Forest collection also provides links to some foreign law resources addressing elder law issues in individual foreign nations.  Rather than reproducing those resources here, the above link will assist researchers in accessing those resources. It is also recommeded that a researcher desiring to locate information on foreign law issues consult the Foreign Law Guide


Internatonal Human Right Issues Regarding Seniors

One of the primary subtopics of International Elder Law is human rights. The Background Paper of the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights on Human Rights of Older Persons:  International Human Rights Principles and Standards provides an excellent overview of international human rights issues surrounding the treatment of elders.   


Journal Articles

The Journal of International Aging, Law & Policy contains articles of interest to researchers on this topic.

The Web of Knowledge is another indexing tool that will assist researchers in identifying multidisciplinary journal articles addressing foreign, comparative, and international elder law topics.
