The 2nd ASEM Conference on Global Ageing and Human Rights of Older Persons was held on 19-21 September 2017 in Seoul, Korea.

The event aimed to share information on policies to respond to population ageing not only in Europe and Asia but also among the United Nations (UN) and international community, and discussed measures to further develop policies. In particular, the Conference identified measures to link plans and goals, such as the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (2002-2022) and Sustainable Development Goals (2016-2030) with human rights of older persons, and discussed detailed and practical measures to enhance international cooperation.
