“Issues of Ageing and Disability: International Perspectives” honors the memory of Ruth Begun, a long-time member of the NGO Committee on Ageing as well as the NGO Committee on Disability. The publication, launched in December 2010, also calls attention to the month in which the United Nations formally recognizes disability through the International Day of Disabled Persons.

The ten papers on various aspects of ageing and disability included in this volume were selected from among those received through peer review based on their research and/or good practice. The papers come from many parts of the world including Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Syria, South Africa and the United States. All are original and not previously published.
