Publication Type

The 2010 Dementia in Europe Yearbook presents our work on the ongoing Lawnet project which explores and provides an inventory of the provisions relating to the rights and protection of people with dementia within member states of the European Union (as well as in Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey). This year's topic is proxy decision making (eg. guardianship measures and continuing powers of attorney) and various forms of legal capacity eg. relating to marriage, making a will, making a contract, voting, civil liability and criminal responsibility). The Yearbook also contains the Alzheimer Europe Annual Report for 2009.
