This report collates responses from a consultation with older people on these two key human rights: access to justice, and work and access to the labour market. These are topics for discussion at the eleventh session of the UN Open-ended Working Group on Ageing in April 2020. This report aims to inform the discussions at this and future sessions.

Keeping our dignity” is the fourth in a series of reports on areas of rights discussed at the Open-ended Working Group. It follows Entitled to the same rights, on what older women say about their rights to nondiscrimination and equality, and to freedom from violence, abuse and neglect, discussed at the eighth session, Freedom to decide for ourselves, on what older people say about their rights to autonomy and independence, long-term care and palliative care, discussed at the ninth session, and Living, not just surviving, on what older people say about their rights to social protection and social security (including social protection floors), and to education, training, lifelong learning and capacity building, discussed at the tenth session.
