Description

“The Missing Voices in Aging-Well Frameworks: A Postcolonial Critique” by Lauren Brooks-Cleator and Audrey Giles proposes a post-colonial critique of the neoliberal take on aging-well. The paper has a twofold focus: a critical discussion of dominant aging-well frameworks combined with policies from the point of view of both postcolonial theory and Indigenous perspective. The authors call for the construction of new, inclusive, and culturally safe aging-well frameworks and policies.
