    Abstract

    This paper delineates key constraints on the formulation and implementation of old age support in developing countries (DCs), identifying specific institutional and organizational points of 'blockage'. The paper argues that these institutional and procedural constraints collectively underpin the continuing marginalization of older people within dominant agendas and existing policy programmes, presenting reformers with knotty problems of policy formulation, policy sequencing and policy implementation. A more appropriate and constructive international advisory regime, formed on the principles of organisational, stakeholder and policy inclusiveness, is proposed and outlined.
