Andrew Byrnes’s work has furthered the critical analysis of older persons’ human rights within domestic and global contexts. This article examines his significant contribution to scholarly and advocacy discourse in older persons’ human rights and the impact of that work. By reviewing Byrnes’s work across the last decade, this article locates his contribution within the field. The article observes that Byrnes’s approach provides options to reignite a stalled debate and provides a necessary catalyst for re-conceptualising ageing and human rights towards a convention on the rights of older persons.
