The GTC Care Initiative 'Conversations on Care': The Law and the Right to Care in Old Age


The presenter will be Jonathan Herring (DM Wolfe-Clarendon Fellow and Tutor in Law, Exeter College, University of Oxford).

This ‘conversation’ problematizes the role and contribution of the law in a context of talk of a “crisis in care” in relation to older people. 


What is the role of the law and human rights in ensuring a decent standard of care in old age?

Should we aspire to more?

What is an appropriate and effective response to protecting the rights and interests of older people regarding care?

What conditions need to be in place for them to work?
