ASEM Global Ageing Center is the very first international specialized institution for the human rights of older persons in Korea, which will function as an international hub for coordinating a wide variety of agendas regarding the human rights of older persons

Our center aims to address various issues regarding the human rights of older persons, which the ASEM member nations are confronting, and ultimately contribute to the promotion and protection of older persons’ rights through policy research and cooperative projects with other relevant organizations

Our center was initially proposed as a part of the project for the enhancement of the human rights of older persons, suggested by the National Human Rights Commission of Korea (NHRCK) at the 10th ASEM Summit in October 2014, and officially approved at the 11th ASEM Summit in July 2016
