The project focuses on the creation of a methodology of the broad definition of senior abuse (EAN) and the pilot introduction of innovative principles of restorative justice into the solution of cases of senior abuse, neglect and mistreatment. The project includes a representative survey in the older population using internationally comparable tools to determine the prevalence of various forms of abuse and to find ways to prevent and address them in gender-appropriate ways. The results and the procedures are put into practice by methodological tools designed for relevant end-users involved WITH older populations. The project is implemented in accordance with the priorities of the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) and the national strategic / action plans for older adults.
