Social Status of Older People

People aged over 60 are woefully neglected in Hungary, even though, they compose a vast and increasing proportion of Hungarian society. Ensuring a dignified ageing process, with the current possibilities of Central Europe, will pose one of the toughest social challenges of the next decades. The Institute wishes to respond to this challenge by: surveying the adoptability of efficient international models, displaying a valid image of the older age group in Hungary, systematically processing social experiences.
