Abstract(s)As is the case in many other countries, the refl ection on ageing has also attracted the attention of researchers in Portugal in the last century. Analyses have primarily emerged from areas such as biology, demography, medicine and psychology. More recently, namely in the last two decades, studies inspired by other fi elds of Science, such as sociology, politics and education, have promoted interdisciplinary research and crossover debates about the different problems associated to the elderly and the ageing process. The educational practices which involve the elderly, though still few, have registered a significant increase, both in the case of those which ensue from self-organization, such as Senior-Citizen Universities, the project highlighted by this article, as well as those which seek to stimulate and respond to senior citizens’ aspirations to participation.
