Altersdiskriminierung in institutionellen Kontexten

Chapter
Part of the Springer Reference Psychologie book series (SRP)

Zusammenfassung

Altersdiskriminierung ist eine der am stärksten institutionalisierten Formen von Diskriminierung. Entsprechend berücksichtigen wir im Rahmen dieses Kapitels v. a. explizite institutionelle Regeln und Vorschriften, welche ältere Personen diskriminieren. Wir diskutieren aber auch subtilere Formen von Altersdiskriminierung, die sich häufig nur indirekt daran erkennen lassen, dass bestimmte Altersgruppen unterschiedlich häufig in gesellschaftlichen Positionen auftreten, auf eine bestimmte Weise behandelt, bei Entscheidungen berücksichtigt werden oder in den Genuss von Vergünstigungen oder Behandlungsmaßnahmen kommen. In verschiedenen gesellschaftlich regulierten und organisierten Lebensbereichen – u. a. Arbeit, gesundheitliche Versorgung und Rechtsprechung – gehen wir auf Ergebnisse von Untersuchungen zur Altersdiskriminierung ein. Insgesamt ergibt sich ein komplexes Bild von Altersdiskriminierungen, wobei die Erscheinungsformen ebenso wie die vielfältigen Ursachen in Abhängigkeit von den betrachteten Kontexten variieren.
