ADEA Vision Document 

This paper sets out a new vision for ADEA’s future. It has been prepared at the request of ADEA Steering Committee when it met for its 34th session. The previous Vision Paper dates from 2001. Since then, significant changes have occurred both at ADEA itself and in the surrounding environment. This critical analysis of the present context underpins the very first recommendation of the recent evaluation of ADEA (Universalia, 2011): The Steering Committee should review ADEA’s mandate and make changes as required to better reflect the evolving needs of key constituencies and the context within which it operates.” (Universalia, April 2011).
