Earlier this year Dominic and Hannah were invited by The Gerontology Society of America and Age UK to contribute to a very special joint issue of the Public Policy & Aging Report. The summer issue, “Cross-national Perspectives on Age Discrimination” included 5 articles exploring the sources of age discrimination, tackling age discrimination and the dilemmas associated with asserting older people’s rights while acknowledging age-related vulnerability. Dominic and Hannah provide the first article in the issue. The article “Ageism Doesn’t Work” explains the processes that contribute to ageism, people’s experiences of ageism and some of the negative consequences of stereotypes and misconceptions about age.
