Resumen

OSORIO PEREZ, Óscar. Ageing population: discrimination and integral public politics. Iztapalapa. Rev. cienc. soc. humanid. [online]. 2016, vol.37, n.81, pp.133-163. ISSN 2007-9176.  http://dx.doi.org/10.28928/revistaiztapalapa/812016/atc6/osorioperezo.

Experiences learned from the natural aging process are reproduced in a context of economic and social insecurity, which makes extremely elderly people vulnerable to discrimination. Research shows that discrimination against older people is not confined to the socially constructed stereotypes and prejudices towards the elderly, but the source is in conditions of poverty and inequality. Since the living conditions of the elderly are a reflection of the situation of young people, tackling the problem of discrimination need to complement comprehensive public policies that guarantee social security and access to justice for all people. Otherwise, senior will be eternally condemned to suffer the same problems that actually put face to face.

Palabras llave : Population ageing; stereotypes; public policies.
