Inhalt Thanks to new achievements of science and health care, modern societies have greatly improved average working conditions and thereby extended people’s average life spans. The promise of a healthy and long live, together with an increasing prosperity of people was the consequence of this achievement and led to fewer births among those privileged people. Correlation between age, reliable health care and declining population growth is not solely a Western phenomenon but a development that is now observed on a global scale. This seminar examines the most important legal questions that arise when societies age or lack an opportunity to age. Students may choose among numerous topics (or develop their own topic) that examine the legal dimensions of e.g., intergenerational equity, age as a form of disability, age and nutrition, age and autonomy (legal capacity, driver’s licence, etc.) discrimination of older workers or tenants, reverse discrimination of young people in politics, age and illnesses of old age, age and assisted suicide or age and the growing challenges of technology. Students are invited to approach this topic from a Swiss, European, or international law perspective and may apply a comparative approach.
Lernziele This seminar is intended to promote and strengthen participants’ ability to critically assess the global dimensions of aging. Students will work independently to develop their own topic and are encouraged to apply a comparative approach if that meets their interests. The seminar exposes students to some of the academic dimensions of legal writing and enables them to add a more practical dimension to it by developing shorter follow-up blog posts.
