A Narrative Review on Legal Aspects of Older People in Albania
AbstractOlder people over the world have been confronted with challenges such as poverty, discrimination, and abuse, hindering their human rights and their place in society. However, the world has not tackled this challenge with urgency. While concerns associated with older people are not a new phenomenon, they have been perceived as challenges that warrant solutions that are operational, reactive, and piecemeal. This is particularly true in the case of Albania. Although older people have been historically ignored by human rights law, their rights and legal aspects are now emerging as an integral part of public policies. Within this frame, our review explores the legal aspects of older people in Albania. From the findings, it has been revealed that although there are laws ensuring legal aspects of elderly people in Albania, they have not been effectively implemented. There is a huge need to effectively implement legal support and rights for older people in Albania.
